Bing & Grondahl plates with the earth's inhabitants and cities

Bing & Grondahl has made two different series of porcelain plates with motifs from around the world. Bing & Grondahl plates with the inhabitants of the earth are produced in white porcelain with a beautiful and characteristic edge. The plates depicts an Englishman, an Italian, a Scotsman and an Australian. The four plates were released around the 1978.

1997 - Venice

In 1997 Bing & Grondahl launched a new plate series, consisting of six porcelain plates with motifs from some of the world's most famous and beautiful places. The series was named "Around the World" and all the plates were designed by Sven Vestergaard. The first plate shows Venice, one of the most romantic cities in Europe. Venice is located at the Adriatic Sea and is known for its many canals. Many of the houses are built on wooden piles and are only a few meters above the water, which gives the unique opportunity to sail in gondolas on the canals, but this unfortunately also means that the city is threatened and difficult to renovate. Venice is stated at the UNESCO list of World Heritage and is definitely worth a visit.

1998 - Paris

Another European city which is also pictured on the Bing & Grondahl World Tour plates is Paris. Paris is known as the city of cities, and one of the most modern cities in the world, home to some of the most famous fashion houses and home to many well-known painters.

1999 - London

In 1999, Bing & Grondahl took us to London, where we were presented with one of most impressing Gothic buildings in Britain, namely the Parliament Building in London and Big Ben. The building of the Parliament began in the late 1830s, but the building was first taken into use in 1852. The first stroke of Big Ben was heard in 1859. On the plate is also one of the characteristic buses which have become an icon of the city of London. The red double-decker buses are known everywhere and connected with London.

2000 - Sydney

The motif on the Bing & Grondahl Inhabitants of the World plate from 2000 was the Sydney Opera House, one of the city's most famous treasures. The Opera House is situated right on the waterfront in Sydney Harbour and is also included on the UNESCO list of world heritage. The Sydney Opera House was designed by the Danish architect Jørn Utzon. The Sydney Opera House was opened in 1973 by Queen Elizabeth II, who is also Queen of Australia.

2001 - Japan

In 2001, the tour reached Japan, where we see Japan's sacred mountain Fuji-San, also known as Mount Fuji. The mountain is, with its 3,776 meters, the highest mountain in Japan and there is always snow on top. Mount Fuji is located about 100 km from Tokyo and can, on a clear day, be seen from the city. The mountain is very breathtaking with its perfect cone shape.

2002 - Copenhagen

In 2002 we end the tour in Copenhagen where we see the entrance to Tivoli. This plate was the last Bing & Grondahl plate in the series Around the World, which has brought us from Italy to France, to England and Australia and from there to Japan, appropriately ending in Denmark. Sven Vestergaard - who has designed all six plates -  takes us to Tivoli. Tivoli was founded in 1843 and is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world.

Delivery of items in stock

All items currently in stock are items that we currently have stored at our warehouse.

Items in stock are normally shipped immediately (within 1-4 business days). When your payment has been confirmed by us, you will receive an order confirmation.

Should the time of delivery be delayed beyond normal (i.e. orders of large quantity) we will let you know.

Delivery of customised/special ordered items and items not in stock

Customised/special ordered items and items not in stock are all items we do not currently store at our warehouse.

We are therefore depending of the various suppliers, dealers and collectors and the time of delivery is only an estimate.

In some situations it can be impossible for DPH Trading to predict the exact time of delivery if the items are specially ordered or customised.

Sometimes the items have to be produced from scratch. If the particular item is of significant age we may have to rely on private collectors who are willing to sell.

All the customised/special ordered items are delivered as close to the agreed delivery date as possible.

DPH Trading could take precautions for the delivery of entire or parts of an order. Part deliveries can occur. We always strive to inform you as quickly and efficiently as possible, should any deliveries change or be divided into separate deliveries.

In extraordinary situations negotiations can be made where the buyer are not responsible for the extra delivery cost in case of part deliveries.
