Holmegaard - Glass Vase
Size: wide: 2½" - Height 8½"
Holmegaard was founded in 1823 after Count Christian Danneskjold-Samsøe petitioned the Danish king for permission to build a glassworks at Holmegaard Mose. Sadly, he died before permission was granted. His widow, Countess Henriette Danneskjold-Samsøe, pursued the project when permission was granted and launched production in 1825 on her own. An amazing feat given the women´s right movement in Denmark did not formally begin until 45 years after!
Holmegaard has been world recognized for the quality of its historic pieces as each has been mouth blown rather than industrial produced.
