  1. Merci beaucoup, Alan et paris1925!
  2. Reminds me of Mt. Rainier...! (I lived in Seattle once)
  3. Thanks for the comment, inky! And for the loves, Ivonne, fledermaus, and racer4four!
  4. Love it, too - both the figurine and the mystery! Mark doesn't ring a bell at all, unfortunately...
  5. Any marks of any kind on it?
  6. Thank you for the loves, everyone!
  7. Thank you so much, artislove! And thanks for the comment, Elisabethan!
  8. Thanks, Cormoran1925!
  9. Is there any way to date pendants by looking at the lock (to determine if it is e.g. just 'Victorian style' or actually Victorian?
  10. Thanks, valentino and VioletOrange!
  11. Thanks for your comments and loves, melanie, vetraio, sean, aghcollect, and racer4four!
  12. Oh, re-discovering forgotten treasures!
  13. I have searched (in vain) for the artist - it looks like 'TL', right?
  14. How elegant!
  15. What an amazing thing! To me it almost looks 1920's/1930's futurism!
  16. In principle only one (located in this beautiful building from 1912 in central Copenhagen:, but several other smaller refineries we...
  17. Thanks, vetraio - I read the article, but there wasn't anything specific about 1905 in it (but thanks, anyway!). I've also looked in the two books written about Hagemann, but it didn't make me any wis...
  18. Thanks for the loves and the comments!
  19. Perhaps you're on to something! - May 1 was and is an important date here - it is still celebrated with ½ a day off, political meeting all over the country etc.
  20. Well discovered - I hadn't even seen that! Interesting - perhaps these vases were not given to him, then, but by him to others (members of the board or other dignitaries?)
  21. I can only agree with vetraio!
  22. Eine sehr hübsche Vase!
  23. I think the letters look Greek...
  24. Thanks for the loves, everyone!
  25. The crown stamp and 'PIE' intertwined was used from 1918 and onwards, so the vase was made after 1918. However, it is possible that that it was designed earlier and produced for some time. I'll look i...
  26. Absolutely enchanting!
  27. Oh, I see - that makes sense. My two Bretbys have flat bases; I should have noticed!
  28. Interesting! Bretby is a very qualified guess, I'd say. They did produce unglazed pottery and, as vetraio points out, are known for decorating pottery with cabochons. It doesn't strike me as being Fre...
  29. It's beautiful! Do you have any tips regarding how to date these vases? I see Gouda vases quite often here in Denmark, but I don't know what to look for...
  30. Fantastic!
  31. 'Pintado a mano' - 'handpainted'!
  32. Thanks for the nice comment, Phil!
  33. Thanks, Phil!
  34. If you're interested I could ask much they want for it...? (If it's still there, of couse...). I have no idea what you find a reasonable price...
  35. Amazing that such a delicate thing is in such great condition!
  36. I am very impressed with all the work you have done!
  37. Could it be some sort of marble?
  38. I saw a gourd-shaped blue Lava vase in my favorite 'used stuff' store - I don't really come across them very often!
  39. Merci beaucoup, Alan!
  40. Thanks, colori and maryh1956!
  41. Thanks for the enthusiasm, Sean! :-)
  42. Thanks , antiquerose! And thanks for the loves, everyone!
  43. No, that's correct - I have a blog (many of the things are also posted here in this forum...):
  44. Well, apparently there are some subtle differences between the two labels. On the earlier one (ca. 1965-67) the 'inner circle' is 13 mm and the label doesn't have a number. On the later (ca. 1966-1975...
  45. Hi austro - I apologise that this site is in Danish, but if you scroll down on the page you can see the Holmegaard labels with the years they were used. Perhaps that will help. Let me know if you need...
  46. Hi - can you see a dot or line above or below one of the letters in 'Royal Copenhagen, Denmark'? That will give you the exact year the vase was made.
  47. I find that there is quite a lot of info on the internet - just search for Pirkenhammer porcelain or Porzellan (if you read German...). Wonderful fruits!
  48. Hi Sean - which museum do you mean?
  49. Thanks for the comments, Elisabethan and Sean, and thanks for the loves!
  50. Tak, Koppel - glad you like it!
