Pair c.1900 Holmegaard decanters?
« on: March 28, 2006, 01:23:16 PM »
I've been offered a pair of decanters by a seller in Denmark, and they think they might be turn of the century (well, last century) Holmegaard. The style is about right, but I'm not 100% as the glass looks too thin and the stoppers don't look right.... I hope I'm wrong!

Just thought I'd try and verify before accepting/declining the purchase:

(sorry about the photo quality, it's beyond my control - I tweaked it as best I could)

eeek pressed stoppers. Whatever they are (it's not in the book, or else it is a mariage) you'd be disappointed by the quality compared to your other items, and I do not think you should add those to your collection.

That was my initial thought - thanks for the confirmation, though!  :D

I think the seller got them confused with these decanters, which are apparently in the 1900 catalogue - according to a website I found:
