Initial production at Holmegaard glassworks began in 1825. Early on, the factory produced only green bottles, but Henriette also wanted to produce clear glass tumblers, and the Bohemian glassblowers were able to manufacture these. The history of Holmegaard glassworks is a story of a few small glassworks in a peat bog, growing to become part of a large modern group over a period of 175 years. During the 20th century, artists entered the equation, designing and shaping Holmegaard’s glass products. This was the start of a long and proud tradition, and as a result, even to this very day, some of the best artists in Denmark are associated with Holmegaard’s glass production.
