Mid-Century ModernismDigsmed- I spent quite a bit of time researching Digsmed as there is very little information online about this popular manufacturer. Through researching the US Trademark records it is known Digsmed, manufactured in Denmark, was imported by The Millard Norman Company, 4688 Paddock Road, Cincinnati, OH 45229. The Trademark available for research was the stylized Vikings helmet.The Digsmed Vikings Helmet Trademark was filed in the United States by The Millard Norman Company on 12/30/68 and was registered on 01/20/1970, it was not renewed and expired 11/4/1992. As listed on the trademark application the first in use anywhere and commerce date according to the records is 11/10/66.I have seen one piece of Digsmed with a Trademark older than the Vikings Helmet which I believe was brought to the US not imported. The information on the US Trademark application is in direct conflict with some with this as well as Digsmed products showing a 1964 copyright, ergo, one could assume the 1964 reference would have a Danish Trademark copyright. I attempted to search the Danish copyright information, however, it can not be confirmed because their online records begin with the year 1982. Assuming those records would include active 1982 trademarks, one can conclude Digsmed was no longer in business in Denmark at that time but just what year they began producing product and ceased doing business is not known.The designer or designers of the Digsmed line of housewares is unaccredited and not listed in the Trademark application and no further information could be found. I should note that the designs incorporated the use of metal not only in function but also as a design element, very similar to those of Laurids Lonborg who also worked with Kastrup Holmegaard Glassworks to provide glassware for his teak condiment and serving trays.It may be helpful for those who are attempting to date their Digsmed products where glass was used, to know the glass was produced by then Kastrup Holmegaard glass manufacturers. The Holmegaard and the Kastrup Glassworks merged in July 1965, hereafter it was called Kastrup & Holmegaard Glassworks many glass items were marked KH. In 1977 the Kastrup Glassworks closed and the company changed it name to Holmegaard Glassworks.
