Since 1969, Bing & Grondahl has produced distinctive Mother's Day Plate annual collectible plates for the holiday that depict animal mothers and their young. Subjects include a dog and puppies, cat and kittens, mare and foal, duck and ducklings, bear and cubs, swan and cygnets, and more. We're very pleased to have the 2010 Bing & Grondahl Mother's Day collectible plate available for this holiday! This year's lovely blue and white plate depicts a border collie and her puppies playing in a field, with mountains in the background, and the inscription in Danish, “Mors Dag 2010,” “Mother's Day 2010.” (Please note that Replacements, Ltd. also has the very rare original 1969 “Mother's Day Plate,” “Dog and Puppies.”) Follow the link below to have a look at our complete selection from this unusual and beautiful series.
The series originated with the art of Henry Thelander, who taught the famous designer Bruno Mathsson. Each plate is hand painted in a cobalt blue on a white clay biscuit. After the pieces are painted, they are fired using a controlled underglaze method. (Bing & Grondahl perfected the underglaze method of firing in 1889 and many companies now use it to help produce sharp, crisp images that do not bleed.) In addition to the "mother and baby" animal themes, the plates include in the design the words “Mother's Day” in traditional Danish script followed by the year of issue and the artist's initials. Bing & Grondahl is the second oldest and second largest porcelain producing factory in Denmark, rivaling Royal Copenhagen. The company was formed in 1853 in Copenhagen by Frederik Vilhelm Grondahl with financing by M.H. and J.H. Bing. Best known for their annual Christmas Plate series, Bing & Grondahl was the first company to produce a series of annual plates for Mother's Day, and they have been doing so for more than 30 years. These plates will make a gift that will be treasured and enjoyed for generations to come.
