Royal Copenhagen Children's Christmas plates were issued from 1998 until 2011. The motifs are inspired by children's joy of Christmas and their expectations for this special celebration.
Children's Christmas Plates from Royal Copenhagen
It is often the children's job to decorate the Christmas tree when it is put on a feet and placed in the center of the living room. Children spend long time decorating the tree and make Christmas hearts, cones and garlands for that purpose, while expectantly waiting for Christmas Eve and in particular the many Christmas gifts.
It's not only Christmas the kids love. Although it's cold outside, there are many outdoor winter activities to shorten the wait. In the years where we have very cold winters the lakes are safe for skating, this draws many children and young people in warm clothes to go out on the ice. It raises a lot of fun and amusement when the balance on the skates must be found.
However, the tradition in mind, a large snowman with black hat, scarf and a carrot in his mouth has to be made too.
All the expectations and the joy that children associate with Christmas, the artist and Royal Copenhagen managed to portray on the Children's Christmas plates.
Royal Copenhagen Children's Christmas plates are richly decorated and there are many details. The artist Ingrid Jensen was the designer of the Children's Christmas plate series.
