Pair of small square decanters with pinched corners for Id please
« on: September 21, 2011, 10:58:44 AM »


Click image to enlarge.

H. to rim 4½" 11.5cm, av. w. 1lb 1¾oz 502g.   No stopper numbers or other marks.   Neatly ground out pontil scar, but not polished.   The sides are pinched in either side of each corner to form vertical tubes.

Any ideas, please?

Thanks for your interest,

Bernard C.  8)

Here is a similar(ish) Kastrup variation Bernard: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,27609.0.html
and the Kastrup catalogue with a few different designs: http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-11827

Although yours do not look like Kastrup I wonder if they are Scandinavian?

Paul — Thanks for posting the links and your comments.    Agreed they're not Kastrup (or Holmegaard), they haven't quite the quality you'd expect.

I bought them very cheaply, thinking they might be British, but a lack of such a response seems to eliminate that possibility.   If someone out there knows but thinks I would be upset, you're wrong.   Whatever I'd be pleased to know, as I'd be acquiring knowledge.

Thanks again, Paul,

Designed by Michael Bang for Holmegaard, from the 'Snapse Doctor' series. This shape is called 'Kluk Kubus', and dates to around 1974.

Nic — I do enjoy getting it completely wrong  :spls: ;D

Grateful thanks for such a comprehensive attribution.

Oops, I only skim-read your second reply - I might have been a little more gentle with the attribution had I read it properly.   ;D

I'm glad they're ID'd as Holmgaard, I felt sure it was so.      :hiclp:
