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).



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
