Question about holmegaard gulvase Empty Question about holmegaard gulvase

Post by crunchberry March 30th 2023, 10:14 pm

Hi, I'm looking at a piece that purports to be a holmegaard gulvase but on the bottom it's very slightly convex and not completely flat. This making most of the wear and light scratches on the bottom around the circular edge and not the entirety of the bottom face. Do authentic pieces ever have a slight curve on the bottom or should they be completely flat? Everything else about it looks authentic. (right proportions, curves, etc) Sorry if this is a dumb question. I'm a noob.

The fact you're asking here means you probably already realise it's not legit but the webpage hardernet.dk is the place for referencing Holmegaard

I have a few, but not to hand. They are blown so yes convex. There are other issues such as if the top lip has been reground to remove a chip. There are enough images on ebay for you to form an opinion. If you go advanced top right on the searchers and click on SOLD ITEMS you can see values. Normally items that sell for decent money are not normally fake.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_nkw=Holmegaard+Gul+Vase+&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1

EDIT: For clarification, they are blown so expect marks on base, not shiny flat and smooth. If this one is going for a very low value then I would be suspicious. If a deal sems too good to be true then it probably is.

Judging an items authenticity on its price or sold price is a terrible way of judging authenticity. I guess you've never received any good deals in your life.

I am aware they are blown and of the small ripples and marks that may appear on the bottom. (With the exception of a pontil mark).

The dimensions are approximately 13 3/4" x 5 3/4".

As I remember, the several I have had over the years were pretty flat on the base.
There are many modern copies around ATM, though not saying yours is.

The small amount of info we have is here:

This is the base of mine, which has the remains of the paper label on the side - so it's concave and has a significant flat rim around the outside.

I have added this image to the thread denbydump refers to.

Thank you for answering my question. Very interesting. Most I have handled were very flat and I wasn't sure if some were slightly convex.

If it's not too much to ask could you post a picture of the bottom face from more of a side view?

I will see what I can do about another image or two.

However, your comment "most I have handled were very flat" could mean that they were repro. I don't know but, even when I was dealing in such things around 30 years ago there was concern about fakes. For my part, I never bought any without the paper label or part of it.

Holmegaard licensed out the making of gulvases to a British factory called Cascade and I believe this is where some of the variations may come from.
