About the product
1898 Bing & Grondahl Christmas plate, designed by Fanny Garde, bears the title Christmas Roses and Christmas Star. Bing & Grondahl's christmas plate from 1898 depicts Christmas roses around the Christmas star. The artist may have been inspired by the legend of the Christmas star, where a little girl went out into the field with her fateher on the night that Jesus was born. When the shepherds went on their way to find the child, the little girl followed. When they found Jesus in the stable, the wise men and the shepherds offered Jesus presents, but the little girl had nothing. She cried and prayed that the mother and child would have a happy life.Suddenly as she prayed roses grew where her tears had fallen, she gathered the roses and gave them to Jesus. Whether this was the inspiration for the plate is not certain, but it is a fact, that the Christmas rose almost always blooms around Christmas time, as one of the few flowers which can bloom in spite of frost and snow.
