Our next offer takes us to Copenhagen, Denmark, as we showcase the highly collectible and rare Danish holiday plates produced by Bing & Grondahl. For more than a century, Bing & Grondahl has produced a wonderful line of collectible plates, after first opening in 1853.
Bing & Grondahl released their first annual Christmas plate, entitled "Behind the Frozen Window," in 1895. This plate was designed for the Bing & Grondahl Company by artist Frans August Hallin. This month, we’re offering the original (and quite rare) "Behind the Frozen Window" plate for the price of $6,099.00.
These holiday plates are not only beautiful, but many have been used to tell stories or to make statements regarding issues of the day. One example of this is found in the 1919 Christmas plate, entitled "Outside the Lighted Window." This design depicts a girl with a basket standing by a fence in front the lighted window of a home, and represents an illustration from the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, "The Little Match Girl."
Other Christmas plate designs were used to protest Nazi occupation or to memorialize soldiers of World War I and II. The 1946 plate, entitled "Commemoration Cross," shows a wooden cross over the Copenhagen canal. This cross was placed there when Denmark was liberated from Nazi occupation, and was done in commemoration of the 1,400 Danish lives that were lost during the invasion of Normandy. Production of Bing & Grondahl annual Christmas plates continues today, as it has for more than a century, and the series is famous worldwide.
