Kuttrolf Decanters...
« Reply #10 on: February 06, 2006, 08:53:23 AM »
I recently saw a bent, crown-stoppered decanter in its original Holmegaard box on eBay - hurray.  :D

And my decanters have finally arrived - I'm convinced that the stopper for the continental one is original - it's got the same swirly pattern on it, and is dimpled on four sides to mimmick the quatrefoil of the decanter. I'll take a photograph later on.

It looks astonishingly new, though, I have to add. There's some scant wear to the base... but otherwise it's very crisp and bright. Are these still in production, or is it just a good quality piece that someone's cared for over the decades?

 :oops: Until I looked more closely. The decanter is etched with a "13" on the rim, and the stopper is etched with a "4".  :oops:

But it's just as likely that someone had two of these decanters and accidentally swapped stoppers, isn't it? *fingers crossed*

the Dansk Glass 1825-1925 book has 8 of these "Klukflaske" in different shapes, sizes and decors (though none in wrythen ribbing) all made around 1900 by Holmegaard, Aalborg and Conradsminde, so it seems to be a rather traditional Danish thing.

I'll definitely have to source my own copy of this book, it seems very useful.  :)

These things are everywhere here! I went to a big collectors market in Utrecht and every other stall, of hundreds, had at least one... Ivo can probably explain this one.


Sorry Frank I cannot help you to a single specific maker for this generic decanter shape.

Are they being produced today, as I was surprised to see so many of them at Utrecht. Seemed to be on bookstalls as well as nearly all of the bric-a-brac stalls. Are they made as a container for a specific brand?

I've seen Holmegaard ones used by several brands - although, unfortunately, I didn't pay any attention at the time as to what they were.  :roll:

To add further to the crown-stopper conundrum... I've just received a plain glass, crown stoppered kuttrolf with a simple silver collar and marked E. Dragsted (a Danish company/silversmith, 1948-1991, who seemed to work predominantly in small jewellery, according to my Googling).

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b108/pinkspoons/dragsteaddecanter.jpg)

Is it likely that the decanter could have been made by Holmegaard and then the decoration applied by Dragsted?

To answer my own question.... yes, it is likely.  :lol:

I just bought a Per Lutken 'Aristocrat' decanter with an E. Dragsted silver collar.

And it is my last decanter, it really is... until the next one, anyway!  I've 23 Holmegaard decanters, and I only use 3 of them...  :oops:

Another kuttrolf maker:

AUCTION

Edit: Before the auction vanishes forever, the label on the decanter reads - GLIMMA GLASBRUK, GLIMAKRA, SWEDEN
