Kastrup Holmegaard name changes
« on: September 08, 2005, 08:38:38 PM »
Hi

This has always interested me – the Kastrup/Holmegaard thing

This is a Kastrup before Holmegaard ‘Magasinet’ – (what does the other word say/) decanter

http://tinypic.com/dhcpp3.jpg Kastrup

When did these decanters become known as ‘Kuttrolf’ – it seems to be after the Kastrup/Holmegaard label was changed to the simple Holmegaard label - Holmegaard took over Kastrup in 65 used the swan label below (how long?) and then changed to 'red window' Holmegaard logo

Thanks


Adam D555 :twisted:

Here is a photo of the interim label taken from a Gulvase

Anyone know the history of the name change from Magasinet or what ever to Kuttrolf?

Magasinet is Danish for shop or outlet.
Kuttrolf is the mediaeval word denoting a decanter with 4 sides buckled in. The piece is inspired on mediaeval glass.

So these were always known as Kuttrolf - by both companies Kastrup and Holmegaard

Bit of a thread revival...

I can't find any instance where Kastrup / Holmegaard themselves refer to this shape as 'kuttrolf', Holmegaard's 1853 catalogue refers to them as 'Klukflasker'.


But I have also found some printed material where the shape is generically called 'angster' - I can't find any other reference to this name, though.


Quote from: Full text from a leaflet accompanying a production sample kuttrolf :
The "Cluck" Bottle

The "cluck" bottle you hold in your hand is a small copy of the century-old decanter, which was made already in Roman times.

During the mediaeval times a very special German type called "Angster" was made, and during the 18th Century this form was brought to Scandinavia, where today it is unique, particularly in Denmark and Norway. This small "cluck" bottle is mouth-blown and hand-made by Kastrup-Holmegaard, modelled on bigger bottles all to contain the famous Danish "snaps", like the "cluck" bottle a product of high quality and tradition.

Is the term "Angster" a specifically Danish one? Also, does anyone know when they were rebranded as Kluk-Kluk, as opposed to Klukflaske / "Cluck" Bottles? I'm guessing c.1970.

Hi, the first label reads as "The equipment store".
Magasin is used in several contexts..magazine as in connection with a firearm ( not likely here!), as in a stockroom where things are kept until you need them and then again as shop/store.  The letters "et" at the end of the word mean "the"

When we put things into storage, we "opmagasinere"them  :)

Hi Nic try this www.rijksmuseum.nl type in angster, the vase they show does'nt look anything like your kluk-kluk.

Quite a construction, must have been very expensive and virtually uncleanable!

Thanks for the link, Sue. The information corroborates some material Max kindly forwarded to me in which Angster and Kuttrolf are interchangeable terms.
