Christian Thomsen was employed at the Royal Porcelain Manufactory (Royal Copenhagen) in 1898, and was employed there until his death in 1921.
Thomsen is said to have had a huge impact on Royal Copenhagen's success throughout the 20th century. A large part of the recognition by the Royal Porcelain Factory has enjoyed over the years, they can thank Christian Thomsen for - He produced more than 100 different figurines, especially he had a fondness for agricultural characters, children figurines, figurines inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales, fauns and trolls, and not least animals and birds figures.
In addition, he modeled vases, and more than 36 different Christmas and commemorative plaques - Christian Thomsen was the artist behind Royal Copenhagen's first Christmas plates from 1908, further down this page you can find several examples of his plate art.
Only one Danish artist, namely Jens Peter Dahl-Jensen can be credited for a larger number of individual artworks than Thomsen. (Dahl-Jensen worked at Bing & Grondahl until he got his own workshop)
