Holmegaard Princess
« on: March 15, 2011, 10:49:33 PM »
Hello

I have recently purchased 3 sets of Holmegaard glasses. 8 Sherry.....8 Brandy......& 6 white wine all in perfect condition. They are i'm told they are the thePrincess design by a Per Lutken?

Could anyone tell me more about the glasses & their designer? They are absolutely gorgeous & i hope are worth the money i paid for them?

Andrew

'Princess' was designed by Bent Severin for Kastrup Glas in 1957. Kastrup merged with Holmegaard in 1965.

Thanks for that! Certainly is different to what the seller told me! Are they a good buy? ie.....are they collectable???

Although they were in production for a LONG time, they're still very collectable and sometimes fetch very good money (depending on the glass - champagne flutes seem to be the most desirable, whilst sherry glasses can often be bought individually for loose change).

If the seller's been a bit free and easy with their attribution, it might be best to upload a photo to double-check that they are Princess.

I will take photo's tomorrow & post them.

Ive just checked the sizes & the sherry glasses seem to be port glasses?? just over 4" height by 2" diameter!

Thanks for your help!
