SW signed swirl paperweight. ID = Sidse Werner, Holmegaard
« on: March 17, 2018, 03:04:31 PM »
Hi everyone. I bought this paperweight in England the other day. It has been signed SW with other letters as well HG followed by another letter possibly an F. Also the number 5048. I am am really sure it is even English as the lettering looks slightly continental..... It has a swirl pattern and is about 7cm in diameter with a flat polished base....

Hi Robert,

I can safely say that I have not seen another weight like this one - a "simple" swirl pattern but with carefully applied initials and numbers.

Hopefully somebody will recognise the weight or its features.

Thanks Kevin, I was nearly hearing tumbleweed there! My thought it could be continental is encouraged by your not having seen it. Secondly, a bit of google detection and checking a GMB thread, yielded a suggestion that, of all places, Holmegaard appears to have used HG7 to denote a design from 1977 and the lettering style matches some examples too. .... rather than a P.L match I will now look for S.W. as a designer possibility.... glass is an unexpected thing at times.

Hi Robert,
that HG is definitely a Holmegaard mark
Sidse Werner? (I have a vase from her with the SW mark...)

Here is my 8cm Sidse Werner paperweight signed  HG 9 SW 5048.  A beautiful and understated paperweight.

Thanks Paul, it is nicely made and is better in person I think than a picture shows. News to me that Holmegaard made paperweights,
