About the product
The motif of this 1982 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 Twelve by the Mail. In his fairytale "Twelve by the Mail" Hans Christian Andersen writes about each month of the year. Right after the bell strikes twelve on New Years Eve, the Mail-Coach arrives to the city and brings with it twelve visitors. The Christmas plate shows the Mail-coach right before it will pass the gates in to the town. At the gate The Mail-coach Passengers present each other as the twelve months and the listener gets a small impression of the weather in the month concerned. But the story cannot be ended until the end of the year. Then the citizens on the town willbe able to tell what each month bought them. Svend Otto S. was the artist who has created this Christmas plate.
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
