Description

Porcelain drop ornament, “2011” on back, Denmark.

The motif has been created by Sven Vestergaard who has taken the story of Copenhagen’s first Christmas tree as his inspiration. It was a young doctor and his wife who introduced the Christmas tree custom in their home in 1811. The story goes that the candles on the tree caused quite a fuss in the streets of the cold Danish capital. The drop ornament shows the tree and a boy watching out expectantly for Santa Claus. 20th edition, 3″, porcelain.
