I think you're right, and Gemtex is/was a distributer/importer. But the colour, according to the photographs anyway, probably discounts Holmegaard as their smoked glass has always had a heavy green tint to it, rather than purple.

I found a Gemtex Overseas, based in India, who manufacture/export handmade glassware and crystal...

Possibly the same folk, relocated?  :lol:

The listing actually says Genatex not Gemtex.  Googling for Genatex gives results for reinforced PVC - used especially for covering slurry tanks & sileage - not the same thing at all! :roll:

The label, however says Gematex... adding even more confusion!!!  :?

I think  that as the label says Handmade for Gematex in Sweden we are looking at glasses made by one of the Swedish glasshouses for an exporter/wholesaler/distributor called Gematex; or for someone who used Gematex as their trade name or collection identity.

Nic, don't worry. I edited my last post three times to get the wretched spellings right.  :oops:  Think I should get my spill chucker back!  :roll:
