Title: Swedish Cased Glass Brandy/Balloon
Post by: petet63 on November 13, 2012, 09:12:23 PM
Hi all, I picked this up today. I have searched for the maker but keep seeing conflicting answers. The label is an import label as far as I can tell but I see similar styles under different makers. Could anyone pin this down for me. It is 17.5 cm in height. I cant really say if it is Red or Orange  :-\ :-\ as my eyes only work properly in good daylight of which we are sadly lacking >:( >:( but will say it is orangy red  or a reddish orange  ;D ;D If anyone needs the label pics or glass pics for reference section please feel free.   Pete

Holmegaard comes from the country next-door to Sweden.

Thanks kisslikeether, it's frustrating when it should have been an easy find.  Don't need days like I had the other day lol. I just could not get my brain into gear !  Just glad I have the GMB and  all the members to put me right.    Pete.
