About

A Private Collection of Danish Porcelain

Focus on Uniques of the Art Nouveau

About the collector and collecting items in specific

Back in 1993 my wife made me aware of Christmas Plates of Royal Copenhagen. You are either hunter or collector, so I decided for the collecting and completed my RC Christmas plate collection a few years later. During various stays in Denmark we gathered the first figurines and developed our love to the Sommerfugl stel (butterfly service) from Bing&Gröndahl.

My collection items became more specific and older through the years. In 2010 I bought my first unique vase on Ebay and concentrated on the Art Nouveau Period of B&G as well as Royal Copenhagen.

Meanwhile I was able to estabilsh exciting and always interesting contacts to collectors in the United States, Japan, Denmark and Germany. It is astonishing how much information can meanwhile be retrieved about this period, the style and the artists.

By exposing our collections to the public we would like to draw the attention of the public again to this famous time and the porcelain art in Denmark. We hope that publications and exhibitions will help on that.

 

Attention: Collecting items may cause serious addiction with all consequences.

A collection will never be completed.....

 

Have fun while looking at these pages.
