Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grondahl figurines of horses
In the old days when the horse was a working animal, and today, when the horse is a pet, many people are interested and fascinated by this magnificent animal. In Denmark, the horse has always been an important colleague in agriculture, where it was an important partner in the harvesting, sowing and transport. Therefore, in the context of the many agricultural figurines from Bing & Grondahl and Royal Copenhagen, the factories have naturally also released porcelain figurines of horses.
The Belgian stallion from Bing & Grondahl is a beautiful example of how highly appreciated the horse was and how much power it had. The same applies to the golden horse from Royal Copenhagen, which stands with outstretched neck and ears back. In both figurines, we feel how much power the horse has.
The Royal Copenhagen horse with harness is also incredibly beautiful. The horse is ready to be harnessed to the wagon and can also carry a rider on his back.
Today, the horse is a highly appreciated pet and one of the major hobbies in Denmark. The beauty and grace of the horse have always fascinated humans and therefore today we mainly use the horse in competitions where their beauty will be evaluated and appreciated. Over time, both Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grondahl have produced several figurines of horses, which shows their beauty and temperament.
Royal Copenhagen Lippizaner figurine shows this noble breed that is often associated with the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. There is also produced some figurines of foals from Royal Copenhagen, which probably relates to our delight of the sweet and spirited foal we see jumping around on the fields in spring and summer. A Royal Copenhagen foal can be difficult to find as there are many collectors for horses and foals figurines.
