We are delighted to offer the charming vintage Royal Copenhagen Boy Whittling A Stick #905 figurine designed by the artist Christian Thompsen. The figurine depicts a young boy who is intently whittling a stick. There are goat tethers hanging from the boy's right side. 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 was first issued in 1908. Finished in Royal Copenhagen's signature shades of gray, blue and flesh tones, our 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 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 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.
