Holmegaard Punch Set, ID = Kylle Svanlund
« on: August 21, 2016, 11:24:58 AM »
Afternoon all,

Can anyone give me any information about these lovely glass pieces.

The glasses have 7528 and the bowl has 7527 etched in the bottom and all initialed K.S. Holmegaard also etched.  Also the ladle is not signed or numbered.

Do we know who K.S is? How old are these? Are they rare?

Thanks!

Rach

attractive blue Rachel  ...........     can't help with the code, but it's quite possible that K.S. are the initials of Kylle Svanlund, who was a freelance designer at Holmegaard during the 1970s.

as a modern set, this may not be as rare as you might wish  -   the marks are dremelled I'd suggest, and not etched.

Fingers crossed a Holmegaard expert is about to look in :)

Hi Paul.

Thanks for your reply.

The only thing I found was this link below:

If anyone has anymore info would be great.

Thanks

I think the only thing you're missing is details of the production run ;D  -  your link seems to provide confirmation of other details.
Perhaps Kylle had a thing for 'blue' - anyway you were successful with the research - I don't imagine there are that many complete sets in the U.K.

The four digit code means that it's an unika piece - created for exhibition and generally (but not always) made in very small numbers.

The link you found describes them as produced for a fortnight-long promotional event, with an engraver working on them at a street stall in Copenhagen, Nov 1971 - so there may be only a few about (with or without additional decorative/personalised engraving), barring any earlier/later production runs.

Actually, just looking at the bowl and glasses - I'm not sure they're a 'set', but rather two separate designs. Whilst they're both cobalt blue, and have contiguous numbering, I'd expect the 'twist' handle of the glasses to be replicated on the bowl.

And I'm fairly sure that the ladle comes from the 1970 'Carnevale' set by Christer Holmgren (also for Holmegaard).
