About the product
1976 Royal Copenhagen Christmas plate, designed by Sven Vestergaard, has as its motif Vibaek Mill. Royal Copenhagen's Christmas plate from 1976 depicts Vibæk Mill on the island of Als.Vibæk Mill was built as a watermill in 1756,barely 30 years before the first European steam mill was established in London in 1784. In 1835, five years after the first Danish steam mill was erected in Copenhagen Vibæk Mill represented the consumation of a centries-old technical development. The mill house typifies a style of building deeply rooted in Danish country-culture. It seems that Sven Vestergaard's motif evokes an age when it was both feasible and simple to adapt industry to the beauty of the landscape.
