Royal Copenhagen Christmas Plates

 

 

Royal Copenhagen of Denmark began making Christmas Plates in 1908. Each annual plate is artistically designed in relief, unique for the year in which it is produced. The year displayed on the surface of the plate, is the year in which it is made. Today, the process of design and production varies little from the original manner established so long ago. The porcelain is poured into a mold, fired in the furnace, and hand painted under-glaze.

 

Prices shown on the following page are for 1st quality plates. Since RC has released 2nds on the foreign market, occasionally these are available in our store. Prices for 2nds average 20-50% less, depending on the purpose for marking. To discern whether your collection contains seconds, run your thumbnail through the three wave mark of Royal Copenhagen on the back of the plate. If there is a vertical etch through the glaze in this area, the plate was released as a 2nd from the factory. The flaws could range from a pen-head size coal speck in the glaze, to an off colored dot where it shouldn't be (white on blue, or blue on white), or the item being out-of-round.

 

All of our items are in factory new condition unless otherwise stated. Please feel free to contact us if you have specific questions regarding your collection, wish to purchase these beautiful plates, or if you simply desire more history on the Royal Copenhagen Factory and tradition.

 

For the Christmas plate collector, please check out our Book section. In 2004, Lars Christoffersen wrote a book titled "Christmas Plates from Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grondahl", the perfect addition to a collectors library or a gift for a new collector. Our books are even signed by the author himself!
