Holmegaard from Ikea!

Actually, whilst we're on the mis-attributed glass topic... I'm really irked by this guy, who labels practically anything and everything as Holmegaard - even after I pointed him in the direction of Kaj Franck as the designer of one of his dishes (directing him to a site with photographs of labeled pieces of said dish):

Good that IKEA gives them a new lease of life at affordable prices.


This I would agree with if they tweaked the design slightly, or in the least gave them some kind of permanent stamp, but exact repros tend to sully the market for original pieces and degrade the price.  :(

Tweaked the design :o  :?  :shock: aaarghhh, don't let the designer here that. There is bound to be differences that the collector can learn and anything that can degrade prices has to be good for us poor collectors :!:

But it doesn't help us poor sellers very much!  :lol:

I agree, there are usually signs - usually internal parts that would have been metal/bakelite being replaced with cheapo plastic parts - but these are hard to spot over eBay, where I tend to buy stock from reasonably regularly.

Funny how I have these things 'filed away' in my head, but I think this seller could also be Pravitx2, a familiar face on the glass section of ebay.

I remember writing to him/her ages ago about a similar misattributed item.
I am not a man

I've tried pointing him in the right direction with two different items, but with no response whatsoever. Sound familiar?

You can't win them all. There are lots of eBay sellers that will defend there misattributions to the death!

Just cross them off your list :roll:

Indeed, this is true. I shall just have to grit my teeth each time I see the words 'Holmegaard Gull Art Glass' come up on eBay searches.

Lord knows what seabirds and their art glass have to do with Holmegaard!  :lol:

Can we petition eBay to have a rule against stubbornly ignorant people, though? Pretty please?  :wink:  :D
