Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grondahl figurines of fish
When Bing & Grondahl and Royal Copenhagen produced a lot of fish figurines, the fishing industry was at its peak, and of utmost importance for Denmark. As with agriculture, fishing employed many people and therefore figurines of fish also are found in many fishermen's homes. Either because the special fish had an impact on the fisherman - if he fished for perch, there was probably a figure of perch in the living room - or simply because there would be a fish figurine in the house.
Today it is often anglers who are looking for specific fish figurines of their favorite fish. Figurines of perch, trout and eel are especially popular. Others are simply passionated collectors of all kinds of porcelain figurines of fish and collect Royal Copenhagen fish as well as Bing & Grondahl fish. Other people collect figurines made by a particular artist.
