Holmegaard Princess Danish Schnapps Shot Glasses - Made in Denmark

Set of six 9cm high very small glasses.

With their sparkling glass, nipped in waist and air bubble in their stems, these gorgeous little glasses are very special.

They were designed for snaps (in Denmark that's a strong spirit made from potatoes called Akvavit that is drunk at celebrations and family gatherings), or ‘Cordial’ (Liqueur). They could also be used for Tequila or other shots.

They were designed by Danish architect Bent O Severin in 1957 for Danish glass house Kastrup Holmegaard, which carries the Royal Warrant from the Danish Court.

They are named ‘Princess’, presumably in honour of the then Danish princess, now Queen, Margrethe.

Would make a wonderful present for any lover of Scandinavian and modernist designs - we guarantee you’ll feel like a Danish Prince or Princess if you drink Akvavit from these little beauties!

Designed in 1957 and handmade in Denmark in the period 1957-95.

Excellent vintage condition.

Note that we are specialist sellers, and also collectors of glass, so you can be confident in the thoroughness and accuracy of our descriptions - we aim for our buyers to receive items in the same or better condition than they were expecting, and our reviews should illustrate this.
__________________________________________________

Note that we have attempted to show and state the condition as accurately as possible but this is a pre-loved, vintage item and some minor signs of age and/or use are to be expected.

Handmade items may have slight imperfections, such as air bubbles in glass, which add to their uniqueness and charm.

There may also be slight variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through.
