The 2018 Royal Copenhagen Annual Christmas Plate is in its 111th edition and has been designed by Danish Artist Allan Therkelsen. The Christmas tree salesman has chosen his most beautiful trees and sells them at the old square in the middle of Copenhagen. Only the nicest trees are good enough for Nytorv where philosopher Soren Kierkegaard was born and writer Ludvig Holberg used to live. Here one feels the presence of history. The white dove in the sky brings Christmas peace. Each plate is embossed on porcelain, hand painted in cobalt blue and then glazed. The “Christmas Tree Market” porcelain plate measures 7” in diameter and includes gift box and brochure.
