2007 Royal Copenhagen Centennial plaquette - Motif: Christmas Eve in Copenhagen
Technique: Underglazed - Designer: Sven Vestergaard

Through almost 100 years Royal Copenhagen's Christmas plates have given people from all over the world inspiration to either visit or to refresh memories from Denmark. To celebrate this 100 year anniversary in 2008, Royal Copenhagen issues 5 carefully chosen plates and plaquettes from the period 1908-2008.

At the top of the famous Round Tower with its 209 metre long internal spiral path, two children stand admiring the view of the snow-clad city of Copenhagen. The cast-iron railing in front of them bears the monogram C4,the monogram of the Danish king Christian IV, who built the Round Tower and many other impressive buildings in the centre of Copenhagen. This motif is the work of the artist Sven Vestergaard, who is also responsible for the last 19 Christmas plate motifs, and he has taken the liberty of altering the view in such a way that it includes as many as possible of the city's most beautiful towers.
