Yes, the base is green. Casing dark colours in lighter coloured glass is a fairly typical Bo Borgstrom design motif.

I've got one of those, or one very similar, the rim wasn't finished properly either.

I'm getting the general feeling that anything with a white interior is Holmegaard, but of course it isn't.  ::)

Saying that I've done it myself, but without the evil of selling something for what it's not.  :'(

Another one often sold as Holmegaard.

This was moved on on a buy it now as Holmegaard at £39.99 though the seller new it was not.

Norleans is a U.S. importer name, I believe.  You can find porcelain pieces also with the Norleans sticker and Japan.

I think someone here posted the history of the company a few months back.

Another one that is often listed as Holmegaard, but is actually Åseda, Bo Borgström:

Here are the Målerås (possibly) glasses:

They're the greenish ones on the left. I'm unsure about the pair on the right (Nic, could these be Holmegaard Copenhagen?)

More of the Målerås:

Could someone confirm that the glasses robbo posted are Målerås, or at least definitely not HG? If so, I can sneak a link into this thread, because the eBay pics have disappeared.

Cathy,

I have the original photos from the auction in the other thread (obviously I can't post them due to copyright). Mine are a size smaller, 70mm high, but the shape and colour *look* the same. I say *look* because without seeing them side by side with the auctioned ones, it's difficult to reach a conclusion. The rim finish is very like the HG Canada glasses I've had. The set in the auction were all labelled.

It shouldn't be *too* long before it's up and ready, as it will only be a basic slip of a thing...

Now where have I heard that before...? ;D

which bit though David? the basic slip of a thing, or the not *too*long bit??   ;D ;D
Thank you very much!

I am reading through all this with great interest, thank you everyone, although how on earth I will retain all this information is another thing.  It is incredible how many variations on a theme there are.

Thank you very much!
