A BIT OF HISTORY
Holmegaard was founded in 1823 after Count Christian Danneskjold-Samsøe petitioned the Danish king for permission to build a glassworks. He died before permission was granted. However, when permission was finally received in 1825, his widow Countess Henriette Danneskjold-Samsøe pursued the project and began production. Much of Holmegaards early work was regarded as derivative and inconsequential, but between the 1930s and 1980s, it was transformed by the designs of Jacob E. Bang (1899-1965), Per Lütken (1916-98), and Bang's son, Michael (1944-2002). Today the company is known for its high-quality products of Danish design.
