About the product
The motif of this 1978 Desiree Christmas plate from the Porcelain Factory Desiree, also known as Désirée Denmark, Svend Jensen of Denmark, Old Copenhagen Blue is found in the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale The Last Dream of The Old Oak Tree. The oak tree in Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale is standing at the edge of the cliff. On Christmas Eve the Old Oak Tree is thinking back on its life for the past 365 years. While the oak is dreaming these lovely dreams the wind is whistling through the country and the waves come tumbling onto the shore. The Old Oak Tree is dreaming how its roots are letting go and it is going to heaven together with all its friends through the years. On Christmas Morning when the crew of the ship is looking towards land The Old Oak Tree has fallen down and the crew has lost their mark, which has always been standing there and it can never be replaced. The motif of the Christmas plate was created by Svend Otto S.
Désirée started the Christmas plate series in 1970 and ended it in 2002. All motifs of the Hans Christian Andersen Christmas plates from Désirée are inspired by Hans Christian Andersen´s Fairy Tales
