  • The Royal guardsmen have watched over the Danish castles since 1658 – with bearskin, red gala uniform and a cross on their fronts. Since Kay Bojesen drew his guards in 1942, they have been present, on ordinary days and at parties, and also business settings when Danish show their colors internationally. The guards, made of beech wood, are hand painted and the sentry box formed packaging, which received the Formland Prize in 1992, wears the monogram with the approval of her majesty, Queen Margrethe of Denmark. These grand-scaled guards include carved wooden stand for display. Special order. Please allow 6-8 weeks for hand crafting.
    Kay BojesenKay Bojesen graduated as a silversmith in 1910 after completing his apprenticeship at Georg Jensen. He embraced the movement towards functionalism in Danish crafts by co-founding "Den Permanente" — a showcase retail shop featuring the best in Danish design. In the 1930s he explored his passion for wood. Creating animals that matched his belief that a product should be "round and soft and feel good in your hand." The lines in a design should "smile."
