Royal Copenhagen Boy Whittling A Stick #905 Vintage Porcelain Figurine By Artist Christian Thompsen
Product Description And Additional Pictures
The Antiquarians are delighted to offer our viewers this charming Royal Copenhagen Boy Whittling A Stick #905 Vintage Porcelain Figurine Designed By Artist Christian Thompsen. As you can see from the photographs, the boy is intently whittling a stick, and has a couple of goat tethers hanging from his right side (not vampire stakes -- we heard you whispering!). He might be engaged in whittling a stick to help him control his goats, or -- and examine his stick carefully -- he might be fashioning a fishing pole to help him while away the hours while his goats graze. Measuring 7-1/4" in height and sitting on a base approximately 3-1/4" by 2-3/4", our Royal Copenhagen Boy Whittling A Stick #905 Vintage Porcelain Figurine by Artist Christian Thompsen was first issued in 1908. Finished in Royal Copenhagen's signature shades of gray, blue and flesh tones, our Boy Whittling A Stick #905 Vintage Porcelain Figurine is stamped on the base with the Royal Copenhagen mark - three wavy lines - the pattern number and the decorator's initials. Christian Thompsen's signature is impressed into the base of the Royal Copenhagen Boy Whittling A Stick #905 Vintage Porcelain Figurine at the back of the mold. In the word, "Denmark," on the backstamp, there is a bar below the 'R' indicating a manufacturing date of 1936. Although this is a truly old piece, there are no cracks, chips or repairs. Our Royal Copenhagen Boy Whittling A Stick #905 Vintage Porcelain Figurine's condition is pristine, with colors that shine!
Unlike many of the other fine European porcelain houses, the Royal Copenhagen Manufactory is not privately owned and run. Established in Denmark in about 1775 by Frantz Henrich Muller, the operations were taken over by the Crown in 1779, when bankruptcy threatened. The manufacturing of fine dinnerware and objects of art have been produced without interruption since that time.
