Porsgrund 1990 Xmas Plate

1990 - Bringing the Christmas Tree

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.  Porsgrund's first Christmas plate was produced in 1909.  It was the only one until 1968 when they gave the tradition new life.  7" diameter.
