I know they're often all generically thought of as by Holmegaard... but I know they're not. Like this one I've just bought probably isn't.

Any ideas, anyone, about the age/country of origin/maker of this one?

Decanter


Just spotted an identical one with a silver collar marked London 1956.

Thank heaven for British hallmarks.  :lol:

Hi,
Also made by Stolzle, Wien, and seen in a 1939 catalogue. Pattern 851, and again, merely a line drawing.
Regards,
Marcus

Just to add to the possibilities, these have also been made in Norway by several glassworks for the past three hundred years and are still in production at Hadeland.

Example of a recent type

Just spotted a kuttrolf on eBay with c.1950s Holmegaard labels (American import) with additional labels, wax-sealed cork stopper and contents of Vencom Strawberry Wine by Funen Wine Co., Odense.

Hopefully I'll win the auction - but it ends in a few days when I'll be away, so it's in the lap of the gods.

I'd ask them to seal the top with candle wax before posting, easily removed.

Would hot wax not damage the original wax seal?

It says in the auction spiel that they'll bag the top and wrap an elastic band around it as it looks like the decanter has already been leaking a bit.  :(

It's only really just occured to me that I'm wanting to buy this decanter because it has some bits of paper stuck to it that I want to look at more closely. Silly, when you think about it.

Possibly, candle wax will be softer though, but that is preferable to having dissolved gooey labels. Leaking fluid might also get it confiscated by any postoffice or customs.

I often buy bits of paper too, sometimes with odd bits of glass attached  :P

Doh... And now I've just spotted a pair with silver-mounts dated 1893. So not as cut & dry as I thought.  ???
