1 in stock
The motif of this year’s Christmas plate is The Little Mermaid designed by Sven Versergaard, Denmark. In all her beauty, she bids travelers welcome from her home at the Copenghagen waterfront – the Langelinie.
This year she celebrates her centeninal anniversary. She has risen from adventure origins, namely from her namesake: the famous and beloved Hans Christian Andersen’s faiytale. She was created by the sculptor Edvard Eriksen and has been displayed since 1913.
The sculptor’s gaze is turned towards the vista of the sea when majestic Danneborg, the royal yacht, lays at anchor. Landwards, we see the fant outline of the Copenhagen’s proud historical buildings: The Stock Exchange, Church of Our Saviour, the Town Hall and the Round Tower.
