I've had a few Broste pieces (ceramic candleholders) with a label 'made in China' but the label also has Broste on.  Is Broste a retailer or wholesaler?

They don't seem to say much on their website but I did find their LinkedIn page:
http://www.linkedin.com/company/broste-copenhagen

I guess they have their products made in China for minimum cost, maximum profit etc...

I've just peeled off all the layers of price stickers on the Broste vase and it does have a 'Made in China' sticker on it.

thanks :) I think many of their designs are really good.  The candleholders I have are lovely.  But I was a bit fazed to read 'made in China' on the label when I'd picked them up, as I thought I was buying something made in Denmark.  Still bought them though.

I rather like the pink color too, even though it's not "real"... I was going to sell it if it was made somewhere else and worth anything, but I think I'll just keep it for myself!! :)
