In 1853 brothers M.H. and J.H. Bing formed a partnership with Frederick Vilhelm Grondahl in Copenhagen, Denmark. Their early wares were porcelain plaques and figurines. Dinnerware production began in 1863 and by 1889 their underglaze color "Copenhagen Blue" had earned them world acclaim. The first Christmas plate appeared in 1908 and continues to this day presenting landscapes, nature and buildings showing a description of Denmark.
This wonderful Christmas plate, designed by Ove Larson, is entitled "Danish farm on Christmas night". It features a farm house with pump in the front yard. The tree, lawn and roof is snow covered and awaiting Santa Claus. The plates measures 6 7/8" across and is drilled for hanging. Marked on the base in green. There are no cracks, chips, nicks or repairs. The original box is not available. Great collectors piece.
