Royal Copenhagen Copenhagen Portraits Mads Stage
From 1978 to 1980 Royal Copenhagen published four large plates every year with designs from Copenhagen, designed by Mads Stage. The Prospectus plates are 27 cm in diameter and the motif is surrounded by a wide gold rim. The gold pattern is a reproduction of the wrought-iron balustrade on top of the Round Tower in the heart of Copenhagen.
The Copenhagen prospectuses show the Stock Exchange, Thorvaldsen's Museum, The Naval Church, The Queen Gate to the King's Garden, Gate to the Citadel, the Museum of Arts and Crafts, The Round Tower, The Naval Hospital at Christianshavn, Rosenborg Castle, Odd Fellow Mancion, Amalienborg Palace and Charlottenborg Castle.
The Mads Stage Prospectus from Royal Copenhagen were warmly received at their release and they are still popular today, many collectors hang them on the wall like a beautiful wall decoration or are displaying them in other ways.
Mads Stage has also designed some of the porcelain factory Désirée Christmas plates and Mother's Day plates.
