The Bing & Grondahl Company was established in 1853 by Grondahl, who was a figurine maker for the Royal Danish Porcelain Factory, and the Bing brothers, who were art and book dealers. In 1987 the company merged with its primary competitor, under the name Royal Copenhagen.
This charming figurine portrays a young girl who apparently has just awakened and is still clad in her floor length nightgown. She is clutching the front of her gown with both hands as she lifts it off the floor so as not to trip. The darling expression on her face indicates she is really not ready to face the day ahead. The figurine measures 8" in height. Stamped in green with the "Three Royal Towers of Copenhagen - B&G - Copenhagen Porcelain Made In Denmark", circa 1970-1983; also in green the model "1624" and artists initials "E". There are no chips, cracks or repairs.
