The Christmas plates from Royal Copenhagen have been issued every year since 1908. The relief for the motif has been hand-cut by the most talented modeling artists based on the designer’s drawing, and the plate has been cut according to old, proud craftsmanship traditions. This plate was designed and sculptured by Allan Therkelsen who has also designed this year’s bell, drop and cup. “How sweet you are,” thinks the horse. It shakes itself in its winter coat and looks curiously at its new, soft friend. Although animal life is rich in the country side, it is obvious that the two are meeting for the first time.
