Dating Kastrup Labels...
« on: February 25, 2006, 08:47:38 PM »
I don't mean literally, obviously. Although both of these labels were on decanters, so at least they'd bring their own drinks... *phew*

But does anyone know during which years these labels were used?

HI,
According the information I have, Kastrup glassworks, Denmark (1873-1965) merged with Holmgaard in 1965, and was then known as Kastrup og Holmegaards Glasvaerker A/S, so this label probably is pre 1965.  Thats as near as I can get for you.

Hi.

These labels are indeed pre-1965. I've a few examples of post-65 Kastrup-Holmegaard labels. I can amble along reasonably well with datelining Kastrup-Holmegaard and later Holmegaard labels, it's just pre-merge labels I find it difficult to pin-point. Especially when there are handfuls of export labels to confuse the matter!  :lol:
