The story of the porcelain factory Bing & Grondahl

Bing & Grondahl Factory Jubilee plate 1853-1978 B&GOn request and initiative from the figurine maker Frederik Vilhelm Grøndahl (FVG) and the two book and art dealers, the brothers Meyer Herman Bing and Jacob Herman Bing, Bing & Groendahl was founded on April 19th 1853.

A modern factory building was built on Vesterbrogade 149 (Copenhagen, Denmark) - at that time outside the city. FVG used to work for the Royal Copenhagen Factory (RC), but resigned when RC refused to produce bisquit-figurines modelled from the sculptures of Thorvaldsen.

The factory had big advantages in marketing as Bing & Son (the bookstore owned by the Bing family) already had representatives travelling all over the country. Now they brought along the Bing and Grondahl products. It thus became possible for the entire population to buy tableware and porcelain figurines for the first time. The representatives brought along blank models of all the porcelain service sets as well as handpainted decoration books. People could then choose the service set and combine it with the decoration pattern of their choice. When the representative returned the following year he brought alongthe new dinner and/or coffee set.

Bing and Grondahl porcelain Learn how to dateAs a trademark Bing & Grondahl chose "The Three Towers" in 1898 - an ancient symbol of Copenhagen, originating from Absalon's Castle. This is the same symbol used in the Copenhagen City Arms. (Bishop Absalon founded Copenhagen in 1167). The brand has been used with several different inscriptions through the years.

A fateful loss was delt to the factory in 1856 following the sudden death of Frederik Vilhelm Groendahl only 37 year old. Fortunately the overpainter Andreas Juel, former pupil of the empire-architect G. F. Hetsch, had the capacity to lead Bing and Grondahl safely through the initial difficulties.

Initially the factory had a big production of dinner and coffee sets with flowers - many different flowers in various colours, painted polychromatic. The style was known as Saxon flower. The porcelain painters, immigrating from Nürnberg, Germany especially, were specialists in exactly this technique. B&G acquired knowledge of the underglaze painting technique in various nuances by 1886. The advantage of the underglaze technique, which the factory had used all along, was that the decoration was protected by the glaze, thus not being as exposed to wear and tear as the overglaze-decorations. Moreover the patterns could be painted directly on the item right after the first burn. Hereby reducing the number of burns to two, thus saving time as well as money. A further advantage was the different glow and gloss in the colours.

Bing and Grondahl Saxon Flower

By 1860 B&G introduced the service set "Don Juan". A handsomely swung round shapes with decorations in red, yellow and gold. The set was renewed with re-shaped coffee cups done by Ebbe Sadolin in 1948 to 1952.

Having existed only nine years Bing & Grondahl participated in the World Exhibition in London in 1862. Christian Hansen contributed with the "Oldenburg" service and Heinrich Hansen with a Coffee set in the Renaissance styl of Christian the 4th. The Exhibition brought succes including the vases and bisquit figurines. The same year Heinrich Hansen introduced the Offenbach coffee-set, which became so popular that it was later also made as a dinner set. The "Offenback" was given to Christian the 10th and Alexandrine at their wedding in 1898, and it was therefore also called the "Crownprince-service".

The painter Heinrich Hansen (HH) was artistic leader from 1868 - specializing in interior pictures. HH created a beautifully decorated service set with gold and flowers for "The Scandinavian Exhibition" in Copenhagen (1872). He called it "Rosenborg" , because he had been greatly inspired by a Meissen-set that he had seen at an exhibition at the Rosenborg Castle. A shop was opened at Amager Torv in 1885 - right next to the Royal Copenhagen factory. The shop was situated here for 100 years, after which it was closed when B&G merged with Royal Copenhagen.

Blue fluted porcelain was painted from 1886. Royal Copenhagen had the rights to the "Blue Fluted" name, so B&G used the name "Bluepainted". Originally it was painted on ribbed porcelain, but later it was also available on the popular new service with dolphins and sea horses as handles on sauce boats and tureens.

Bing and Grodahl The Heron Tableware

Pietro Krohn (educated at the Royal Academy of Art) was artistic leader at Bing and Grondahl from 1885 to 1892. During The Northern Exhibition in 1888, B&G exhibited a new service with scales, which has been very popular ever since and the base of many service decorations today. At the same exhibition, the "Heron" service was launched - attracting much attention. The service set was produced exclusively in underglaze with gold - a foretaste of the new "Art Noveau" style. The service was simply made to show off the peak of B&G's artistic and technical abilities. As with Royal Copenhagen's Flora Danica, The Heron service is considered a masterpiece of Bing & Groendahl. The shape as well as the decoration was considered almost revolutionary. The Heron was also exhibited at the World Exhibition 1889 in Paris, where parts of the service was immediately bought by museums and private collectors from all over the world.

To decorate the Heron service, the two female artists Fanny Garde and Effie Hegermann-Lindencrone were engaged. Pietro Krohn had taught both women at "The Klein Industrial Drawing and Art School for Women". They were both engaged as decoration painters, but as time went by they personally designed new models that they wanted to decorate. The two women had a close co-operation, sharing the same studio, and they later lived and travelled together.

The "Butterfly" service was introduced in the late 1880's. Like the blue painted service, this was produced in various versions. With a golden edge it was called "Kipling" and with blue scales it was called "Dickens". Designed by Fanny Garde the "Seagull" service was introduced in 1892. The coffee and dinner set was an expression of Fanny's discreet "Art Noveau" style. A few generations later it was given the name "National Service of Denmark" as it was to be found in every tenth home throughout the country. The set is produced both with and without golden rim.

Today the "Seagull" service is the only service set still produced out of the entire original Bing and Grondahl service production.

Designed by Fanny Garde the "Seagull" service was introduced in 1892. The pattern was soon to become extremely popular throughout Denmark, and was used in one out of ten homes.

By idea of Harald Bing, son of Jacob Herman Bing, the world's first Christmas plate "Christmas Eve" was produced at Bing & Grondahl in 1895. Cautiously B&G started out with a very small production of this very first plate. When it showed to be a big sales success, plate productions were started throughout the world including at Royal Copenhagen. Thus this first plate set the fashion of the global interest in collectibles. It became a worldwide craze and all the manufacturers in the world as well as organisations produced or had plates produced for any occasion. No other manufacturer has produced as many plates as Bing & Grondahl.

The 1895 plate was designed by F. A. Hallin. Bing & Grondahl has produced thousands of different plates.

Like e.g.
King-plates
Christmas plates
Easter plates,
Mother's Day Plates,
Railway, tram and aeroplane plates
Lodge, jubilee and Commemorative Plates
Church plates 
and many more.

Not even B&G themselves know exactly how many have been produced through the years, as much material was lost during a fire in their archives.

Successor of Pietro Krohn was J. F. Willumsen (JFW), engaged as artistic leader in 1897 to 1900. Despite the fact that he only modelled one figurine during his entire engagement - namely "The Bathing Boy"(now placed at the ceremonial hall at the Copenhagen City Hall), he was continuously a huge inspiration to the workers and artists of RC.

In 1897 the sculptor Axel Locher started at Bing & Grondahl. In close co-operation with Willumsen, he created several monumental vases, such as The Wood Cutter vase (Fall). JFW made numerous experiments with multi-colours and arranging white and coloured surfaces along each other. He discovered the metallike ironoxide-glaze varying from deep ironred to light bronze.

During the leadership of Willumsen Svend Hammershoj also worked at the factory primarily making vases. J. P. Dahl Jensen was hired in 1897, too. He was a modelling master from 1897 to 1917 modelling several figurines on behalf of B&G. Willumsen was hired to secure a success at the Paris World Exhibition 1900. Exactly this exhibition gave Bing & Grondahl the international breakthrough they had hoped for.

The Dahl Jensen underglaze figurines of birds, animals and people, as well as the Seagull, the Butterfly, the Empire and the Bluepainted service sets were the basis of the Bing & Grondahl finances.

Below please find some of the porcelain figurines and plates designed by Dahl Jensen, while he worked for Bing & Grondahl:

Although the period with Willumsen were prestigious, earnings were not good. A few years after his resignation, the factory worked without an artistic leader, but strangely those are the years, when the B&G financial foundation was created.

Bing & Grondahl B&G Empire Coffee PotThe Empireservice was launched in 1904. It was designed by Harriet Bing.  

Architect Carl Petersen was engaged as artistic consultant in 1912. He had a strong passion for stoneware, the shapes, ornaments and glazes that the stoneware caused. 

 

  

 

 

 

Bing & Grondahl polar bear B&G Knud KyhnThe wellknown Knud Kyhn created his first stoneware figurine - a duck - on behalf of B&G in 1913. But he also designed some of B&G´s most popular  Polar bears the one you see here.
His production of stoneware figurines at B&G was vast. Probably his small or big darkbrown stoneware figurines of for example bears are the most renowned.

 
 

"Norden", a subsidiary of Bing & Groendahl, was founded in 1916. It produced porcelain parts to be used in the rapidly expanding electricity market. The products ranging from telegraf insolators to electricity bells. This enterprise further consolidated B&G's economy. As the first general manager of "Norden" Dahl Jensen was engaged from 1917 to 1925. The Frenchman Jean René Gauguin was employed by Bing & Grondahl for a long period. He was as a completely self taught artist inspired and supported by his friend Kai Nielsen.

Kai Nielsen started in October 1923 as a permanently employed artist, creating unglazed porcelain and stoneware sculptures. Most reputed is probably his many sculptures in the special stoneware mass that he called "Roche Céramique".

Moreover he was the first to introduce faience at B&G. In 1927 he created 10 expressionistic giant sculptures representing animals and people. His brother Pola did the enamel decorations of the sculptures.

Another result of the exhibition was the co-operation with the craftsman Ebbe Sadolin. Ebbe Sadolin (EB) was very inventive in designing figurines, vases, service sets etc.. He was permanently engaged two years after the exhibition. His specialty was the shapes. He left decorations to others, except for the glazing of relief patterns. EB experimented with colours, gloss and dispersion, when used on relief products and quickly developed a preference for dull glazes.

The work involved in designing and creating a service set is extensive and expensive, none the less Ebbe Sadolin designed a number of service sets for B&G, for example the "Lovfald" and the "Demeter", painted with decorations by Ove Larsen. His service "The Milky way" was introduced in 1942. It was decorated with brown lines and a golden rim and the surface was sprinkled with small gold stars. The famous "Bodilstatuette, awarded each year to outstanding danish movie actors and directors, was created by Ebbe Sadolin. Ebbe Sadolin had a major influence on the development of B&G. He stayed with the company, but from the mid-thirties he also engaged in illustrating magazines. In 1977 he celebrated his 50th anniversary with Bing & Grondahl.

Experiments in "Soft" porcelain was done by Axel Salto during the years 1923-1925. The delicate subdued glazes gave the products a silk-like expression.The sculptor Kai Nielsen created 40 models of porcelain figurines in that period before his unexpected death in 1924. The wild and original unglazed porcelain figurines from Gaugain's hand was among the news at Bing and Grondahl's exhibition at the Paris World Exhibition 1925. Also displaying the sculptured Kai Nielsen figurines in white porcelain as well as Axel Salto's soft porcelain and stoneware. The exhibition granted B&G big artistic and economic success as well as international attention.

Bing & Grondahl Service, Christmas rose, sugar bowlThe Christmas Rose dinnerware was presented in 1936 designed by Cecilie Louise Hallin and her husband F. A. Hallin (the designer of the world's first Christmas plate "Christmas Eve".).

At request of artistic consultant Aksel Rode, Gertrud Vasegaard, a ceramic artist and daughter of Hans Adolph Hjorth (Hjorth's Factory, Ronne), was engaged for "guest performances" at Bing & Grondahl during the winter months of 1945 to 1948, while working at her own workshop in Gudhjem the rest of the year. This double life ended in 1949, when she became part of the permanent staff. Her specialty at Bing & Grondahl became the stoneware. Aksel Rode developed a number of new glazes especially for her. Her unique ceramic talent was displayed and she became very significant to the future of the factory. The style, she fostered, began a new era in the history of stoneware. Her engagement at B&G lasted for 10 years, after which she started a workshop in cooperation with her daughter Myra and Aksel Rode, who had then become her husband.

In 1961 the factory employed Erik Magnussen on the request of artistic consultant Asger Fisher (Manager of "Den Permanente"). He became the big innovator and developer of design and products up through the 60's and 70's. Through his pottery background and his technical sense he had the gift of designing for production. It was in his nature to create functional and simple things extremely suitable for their purposes. EM startet out by designing the"Form 679" service only including 11 pieces, the selection was cut down to an absolute minimum. Later the "Hank" service followed including 18 pieces. This was his first production with other colours than white.

In the figurative language of the post war years, it was said in the 1920's that in the mutual relationship between Bing & Grondahl and The Royal Porcelain Factory, RC sold to the madams in furs, whereas B&G sold to the university graduates in fleece coats. The primary customers of RC were still the Royal family and the upper middle class, whereas Bing & Grondahl sold to the intelligensia. Although the core business of B&G was bisquit figurines, they continuously produced a wide selection of figurines, plates and service sets. Their production quickly grew very extensively. To survive in competition with RC, Bing and Grondahl soon realised that to engage with the leading artists and designers of the time paid off. This attitude has been characteristic of Bing & Grondahl throughout the entire existence of the factory.

This attitude was displayed in the stoneware production initiating around 1912. The artists were given extremely free hands and Bing & Groendahl deliberately concentrated on providing a creative and stimulating artistic environment. No questions were asked as to whether a product or an experiment was worthwhile. Potential results were just awaited calmly.

Bing & Grondahl B&G 1987 Jubilee plate

B&G merged with The Royal Porcelain Factory in 1987, after which the mutual name became Royal Copenhagen. When the two factories became Royal Copenhagen, Bing & Grondahl had the largest earnings of the two with major exports, primarily to Sweden. For instance Bing & Grondahl was Royal purveyor to the King of Sweden. Yet the Bing & Grondahl name disappeared almost immediately after the merger. Today the illustrious name only lives on in plates and other collectibles being released every year mainly around Christmas. All other products originally manufactured by B&G and still in production, are now stamped with the Royal Copenhagen hallmark. It is difficult to establish which product was originally manufactured by which factory.

Bing & Grondahl has through the years been Royal purveyors to Russia, Sweden, Denmark and Great Britain. In Denmark and the US the factory has been known to produce porcelain and figurines of a quality just as good as Royal Copenhagen. In most of the world the knowledge of Bing & Grondahl is very limited as Danish porcelain is synonymous with Royal Copenhagen to most people. Royal Copenhagen is the name under which The Royal Porcelain Factory has always been marketed internationally, so many foreigners have never heard about B&G. Additionally both factories have been marketed under the Royal name since the merger. The Japanese especially, who are also royalists, and who did not purchase Danish porcelain untill the late 90's, buy Royal Copenhagen exclusively.
