Johannes Hedegaard, "Girl With Scarf" Relief Plaque for Royal Copenhagen, 1960

$275

About

Johannes Hedegaard, Danish (1915-1999). "Girl with Scarf". Bisque and glazed stoneware relief wall plaque, 1960. Plaque is marked with Royal Copenhagen crown, Aluminia Denmark beehive, artist's and decorator's signatures, and item no. 2798-160 on verso. Johannes Hedegaard was a celebrated Danish ceramist whose line of figurines and relief sculptures became an early hit for the Aluminia company - later renamed Royal Copenhagen - between 1948 and 1966. In this relief plaque, referred to as "Girl with Scarf", the lovely cobalt, rust, and turquoise glaze of the headscarf contrasts pleasantly with the light coffee color of an unglazed stoneware background.

About the Maker

Royal Copenhagen

Producers of the finest in Danish porcelain, Royal Copenhagen is a company steeped in tradition. Its celebrated blue-and-white china patterns as well as its famed hallmark depicting the royal crown and three waves — symbolizing the monarch who founded the company and the three major waterways of Denmark — are emblems of master craftsmanship.

Royal Copenhagen was founded in 1775 by Queen Juliane Marie. Years earlier, after the death of her husband, King Frederick V, Juliane’s stepson ascended the throne. Shortly into his reign, he went insane, and the Queen became the head of Denmark and its small empire. She sought to improve Denmark’s economy and founded factories around the country to promote domestic growth and international trade. Royal Copenhagen was one of the first of these. Royal Copenhagen first made dinnerware and vases with blue-and-white motifs inspired by Chinese porcelain, then the rage in aristocratic Europe. Many of these designs are still made today.

Apart from its classic patterns, Royal Copenhagen has adapted to the changing styles of time and appeals to many different tastes. Their prolific body of work includes Rococo-style porcelain statues that incorporate stylistic floral patterns in an Art Nouveau style, as well as modern vases by such noted 20th century Danish ceramists as Axel Salto. Whether used for special occasions or displayed as part of a design collection, Royal Copenhagen pieces represent a legacy of the highest quality.
