Royal Copenhagen Collectibles 2020 B&G Mother's Day Plate
The Bing & Grøndahl Christmas plate was the first of its kind in the world, when it was created in the late 1800s. The idea of the Christmas plate originated with Harald Bing, owner of Bing & Grøndahl, who hired Swedish artist Frans August Hallin to create the motif. Hallin’s technique of cutting the motif for the plate in relief created a very detailed expression. The first motif was the Copenhagen skyline. Only 400 copies of the plate were produced, but it became the start of a Christmas tradition that thousands of collectors anticipate with excitement every year. Later, more Collectibles have joined the series of Bing & Grøndahl; the bell, drop, cup and more lovable items. The evocative motifs and noble craftsmanship of the Bing & Grøndahl Collectibles is known and loved around the world.
