The Christmas plate from Bing & Grøndahl is the oldest of its kind in the world and was issued for the first time in 1895. This motif, drawn by artist Dag Samsund, is number 125 in the series and it adorns the plate, the bell and the drop. The relief has been hand-cut based on the artist’s own drawing and the plate was made according to old, proud Craftsmanship traditions. Time is standing still around the thatched cottage, which is covered by snow for Christmas Eve. Father is chopping wood for the fireplace, but little sister is impatient because the Christmas tree is waiting.
