The 2017 Bing & Grondahl Annual Christmas Plate is in its 123rd edition and has been designed by the Danish artist Dag Samsund. The family is anxiously watching from the window as father has gone to get a Christmas Tree. Once the tree has been brought in, they will decorate it and place the family's Christmas star at the very top. Each plate is embossed on porcelain, hand painted in cobalt blue and then glazed. The "Waiting for Father" porcelain plate measures 7" in diameter and includes gift box and brochure.
