1993 - Father Christmas - 7 inches

The origin of the Christmas plate is an old Danish tradition.  Wealthy people gave their servants a plate heaped with goodies.  When the food was eaten, the plates often served as a decoration on the wall.  The worlds first Christmas plate from a porcelain factory was introduced in 1895 (Bing & Grondahl).  The idea was later taken up by several Scandinavian porcelain factories. 
The Christmas Plate from Bing & Grondahl, the world's oldest collector series, made its debut in 1895. Each year the plate's motif is also used on Christmas Tear Drop ornament and Bell ornament.
