Not Holmegaard.

As far as I know pieces in this style have been made all around the world, so I am rather clueless about a maker...

Hi cherryt,  may we see pics of the base please? 
I am wondering if they could be Flygsfors?
Have you Googled it to see if they look like yours?

I have a very similiar piece I bought in the Czech Republic in the early 80's that isn't signed.

There are some inscriptions on the bottom, the large one says magnor, the smaller one is impossible, will try and get a pic.  These were given to me, just curious about them, think they look great on my unit though!

The smaller one does look like Flygsfors, if so it is likely signed in one of two ways.
Firstly, on opposite sides of the base it will be signed "Flygsfors" and "Coquille". Secondly, again on opposite sides of the base "Flygsfors" and "Kedelv" with a two figure date (such as 56 for 1956).

Interesting that your large one is signed, Cherry. I have an amber-ish coloured one the same shape which  doesn't appear to be marked at all, but which matches pieces known to have been sold through IKEA, as Ivo said above. Magnor is a Norwegian glassmaker, of course, so IKEA retailing their glass is unsurprising. :)
