Kay Bojesen songbirds
The bird was originally designed in 1950 by Kay Bojesen and in 2012 Rosendahl resumed production of the lovely colorful Rosendahl Kay Bojesen wooden bird figurines.
Kay Bojesen birds are available in many different colors and are named by the designer personally. All birds are named after a person in the Kay Bojesen family:
Kay is naturally named after Kay Bojesen himself. The blue color is absolutely no coincidence since Kay Bojesen loved blue and often was dressed in a blue suit, white shirt and tie.
Kay Bojesen bird Otto is named after Kay Bojesen's only child. Kay Bojesen songbird Otto is an elegant gray gentleman who fits perfectly with his beloved wife, Ruth.
Kay Bojesen bird Ruth is named after Kay Bojesen's Swedish daughter in law, Otto's wife. Kay Bojesen songbird Ruth represent joy and cheerfulness.
Kay Bojesen bird Peter is named after Kay Bojesen's oldest grandson. Kay Bojesen songbird Peter is dressed in elegant black.
Kay Bojesen bird Pop is in contrast to the previous four songbirds not named after a family member, but Kay Bojesen's favorite mineral water, soda pop. Kay Bojesen songbird Pop greets the orange color and the stripes end straws from the childhood.
Kay Bojesen bird Sunshine is not named after the family. Originally Kay Bojesen designed only five songbirds, but Kay Bojesen Denmark chose to publish six and Kay Bojesen songbird Sunshine is one of the original color combinations.
Although we know the birds are not alive and cannot sing for us, they seem alive. Every songbird represent joy, and look like they can start singing for us every minute. The song birds are beautiful individually or together in groups.
