  • Santa must hurry on his way, as he has many presents to deliver in time for Christmas. Luckily his happy little helper, the polar bear cub, keeps him company on his merry way. The Annual Santa figurine is hand-painted with beautiful details and has been issued every year since 2001, created by artist Sven Vestergaard.
    Sven VestergaardAn early start....
    At the age of 16 Sven Vestergaard (b. 1932) was employed at the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory as an apprentice in the overglaze department. The effect of this decision is still evident in his meticulous attention to minute detail and the subtleties of the porcelain medium.
    In 1959 Sven left the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory and started working as illustrator at various Danish advertising agencies as well as Berlingske Tidende, Denmark's oldest newspaper.

    ...and a happy return
    When the position as draughtsman in the factory's design studio became vacant in 1975, Sven Vestergaard, who had never lost his love for porcelain, was happy to return and develop his talents as an artist.
    That same year Sven Vestergaard's artwork was chosen for the Christmas plate, "Danish Watermill", his first Christmas plate in a series of many.
    In 1985 he became designer of Royal Copenhagen's Christmas plates and in 1989 he got his own studio, working on a freelance basis for Royal Copenhagen.
