How can I see how old my Bing & Grondahl porcelain is?

The Trademark/Factory Stamp

It is the factory stamp or trademark of Bing & Grondahl, the Danish porcelain manufacturer, that helps determine the age of any porcelain item made by B&G.

The porcelain factory Bing & Grondahl was established 19th April 1853 by Vilhelm Grondahl and the brothers Meyer and Jacob Herman Bing, who where book and art dealers.

About the Bing & Grondahl Trademark

In 1898 Bing & Grondahl chose "The Three Towers" as their trademark. "The Three Towers" is an ancient symbol of Copenhagen originating from the castle of Absalon and the same symbol used in the City Arms of Copenhagen (bishop Absalon founded Copenhagen in 1167). The trademark was used with little variations but with different writings until 1970. Afterwards their expression became more stylized with less ornamentation.

Many beautiful old porcelain figurines, coffee and dinner sets, plates, bells, Christmas drops and much more have been produced by Bing & Grondahl through its many years of activity.

By looking at the trademark or factory stamp under an item you can actually see how old the porcelain is.

Alle ordre over kr. 1.000,- leveres fragtfrit i Danmark. 

Fragtfri betyder at vi betaler for forsendelsen af din ordre, dvs. der bliver ikke tillagt fragt eller ekspeditionsgebyr til de viste priser, hvis du blot bestiller for over kr. 1.000,- 

Du kan altid se det samlede beløb for de varer du ligger i indkøbskurven incl. eventuel fragt -  inden du gennemfører dit køb.

Vi sender primært med Post Danmark eller GLS i Danmark, til udlandet bruger vi oftest FedEx, dog afhængigt af hvilke varer du bestiller mv.  

Den fragtpris som vises i indkøbskurven beregnes automatisk ud antallet af varer, deres mål og vægt, leveringsland og leveringsmåde. (Bemærk vi leverer ikke fragtfrit til udlandet). 

 

Ekstra tunge varer leveres ikke fragtfrit

Hvis du bestiller møbler, eller andre meget store eller tunge varer, som ikke kan sendes med posten eller GLS, leveres disse ikke fragtfrit. 

Når en vare har     Ekstra fragt    symbolet,  er det fordi varen er af betydelig

størrelse og/eller vægt. På disse varer kan vi ikke tilbyde at levere fragtfrit ved køb over 1000 kr.

Typisk er det varer som møbler, større bronze figurer, kæmpe store vaser, kæmpe store lamper,
der ikke leveres fragtfrit.

Sådanne varer kan ikke købes online før DPH har udregnet en fragtpris. - Dette gøres ved at lægge
varen i kurven, og sende kurvens indhold som en forespørgsel til DPH.

NB. Når der er tale om møbler og andre store ting, kan det ofte være en god ide, at afhente varen i
vores butik i Odense N. - Det giver dig mulighed for at se varen i virkeligheden inden du endeligt beslutter
dig, og samtidig sparer du fragtomkostningen.  - Skriv gerne i kommentar feltet, når du sender os en
forespørgsel via websitet, at du overvejer at afhente i butikken.
