Royal Danish Life Guard 28 cm

The relaunch of a handpainted treasure from the archives. In close collaboration with The Royal Danish Guards Association, Royal Copenhagen has relaunched the figurine of a guardsman from The Danish Royal Life Guard. The figurine is hand-painted in Royal Copenhagen’s famous underglaze technique, where both airbrush and normal brushes are used. No figures are therefore exactly the same and the initials of the individual painter are at the bottom of the figure. The figurine was originally created in 1956 by Svend Jespersen for Bing & Grøndahl and hasn’t been in production since 1987.

The Three Waves
Proposed as The Royal Danish Porcelain Factory trademark in 1775 by Queen dowager Juliane Marie, every piece of Royal Copenhagen porcelain is instantly recognised by the three blue waves on its underside symbolising the Sound, the Great Belt and the Little Belt - the three main waterways of Denmark.
