Description
Fanny Garde - Bing & Grøndahl - cups and saucers (12) - Porcelain
Denmark - 1970-1983

6 cups and six saucers of danish porcelain Bing & Grøndahl, model Seagull. B & G was founded on ¡ 1853, by Grøndahl, who was a figurine maker for the Royal Danish Porcelain Factory, and the Bing brothers, who were art and book dealers. Grøndahl initially began the company to produce biscuit figurines inspired by Bertel Thorvaldsen. The company extended production to include elegant tableware and coffee sets.
The company's signature design, Seagull, was created in 1892 by designer Fanny Garde. The modest, classic design features flying seagulls against pale blue backgrounds, sea horse handles and shaded patterns of scales around the edges. Due to its popularity from the 1950s to the 1980s, the Seagull design was considered the "National Service of Denmark". During that period one out of every ten Danish households owned some of the dinnerware service. The trademark backstamp is the three towers derived from the Coat of Arms of Copenhagen.
