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 darling white porcelain figurine of a nude child with an earache is one of four figures designed by Svend Lindhardt (1898-1989), noted sculptor bronze, ceramic and porcelain, who worked for Bing & Grondahl and at his own workshop. The figure portrays the child in a knelling position and holding his hands over both ears. The figurine measures 4 1/2" in height and is stamped in green with the three towers mark "B&G - Kjobenhaven - Denmark - 2209" and blue "B & G". Impressed "Sv. Lindhardt". This mark was used from 1962-1970. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. It will make you smile and remember your children when they were little or now your grandchildren. The four figures in my store are priced individually or you may purchase the entire set for $145.00.
