Bing & Grondahl started the tradition of Christmas decorations back in 1895 when the first Christmas plate was issued and in 1908 Royal Copenhagen released its first Christmas plate. In 1987 the two factories merged but the Christmas plates are still launched under both brands.
Bing & Grondahl publishes an annual Christmas plate, a Christmas drop and a Christmas bell.
The annual Christmas range from Royal Copenhagen today is slightly bigger. Beside the Christmas plate, Christmas drop, and Christmas bell the factory also publishes a mini Christmas plate (plaquette), a Christmas cup with saucer, an Annual Santa figurine and an Annual Christmas tree figurine.
In addition to the standard Christmas products, Royal Copenhagen has for some years published some other decorations such as ornaments for the Christmas tree, small pixie figurines, cute angels, decorative mini Christmas trees and other decorations for the home and the Christmas tree.
Royal Copenhagen Christmas decorations
For a brief period from 2004 to 2010 Royal Copenhagen published a series of Christmas decorations, called "Royal Christmas". The series includes Christmas decorations like top star for Christmas tree, candle holders for Christmas trees and from 2006- to 2010 there was also released three sizes of Christmas trees with decoration. The three Christmas trees are now sought-after collectibles, as many did not manage to gather all three before they went out of production. Christmas decorations from Royal Copenhagen is a beautiful combination of gold and pure white porcelain - materials that complement each other in the finest manner. It also presents the decorations from the oldest Royal Copenhagen tableware - Blue Fluted - on some of the Christmas decorations.
