The clear and smoke ones already fetch considerably less on eBay than those with Holmegaard colours, so I think many serious collectors are already aware that they're not strictly Holmegaard.

However, I don't think it will alter the value of the dark blue and amber ones as they're indistinguishable from the Danish-made Holmegaard models. It may make labelled vases that bit more desirable, though.

If you bought it because you like it, rather than an investment, then it's still all good, Max..

After all, the only difference between a Cascade and a Holmegaard, besides colour, is that one was made in Copenhagen and t'other was probably made in Rotherham.  ;D

How big is your vase, btw Max? I also need to figure out the range of available sizes from Cascade. I did once find a tiny amber Gulvase (from memory, approx. 15cm tall) at an antique fair for £1, but I had literally just spent my last pennies.  ::)

OH dear, I just looked at the last Gulvase I sold..... the height was right, at 10 inches, so I was happy, but it was grey/smoke colour......

Still, the buyer was happy so I suppose I shall just have to know for next time.

I wonder what the right wording would be now for these?

Thank you very much!

I've got a smoke one too, exactly 10", but it's much more 'brown' smoke coloured than Max's (which looks a nice grey)  ???

Thanks for the picture/info, Max. :)

Robbo. I've seen the browny-grey ones too - I'm not sure if they're Cascade also, but they do seem to pop up for sale almost exclusively in the UK. There's still LOTS of poking around to do for definitive answers.
