I’ve received a Royal Copenhagen figurine called “Farmer with Sheep.” I’ve done a little research on it and it appears to have been a quite early one, but the model has been made for a considerable period of time. What do I need to look for to determine if mine is an old one or a later piece?
Here’s my response: Well, the short answer is no, this is not an early example of this model.
One can look for the decorator’s initials or number, the type of crown used in the company marking, the form of company stamp or the actual date code within the company mark itself.
The easiest method is using date codes, Royal Copenhagen employed two types of codes; one from 1932 to 1949 and a second from 1950 to 1984.
The other great Copenhagen manufactory Royal Copenhagen had a system for each pattern: the pattern name had a number at the series of items in that particular pattern had another number.In 1957 Kronjyden initiated a stoneware production in cooperation with the designer J. Quistgaard (1919-1987) and his company Danish Design, starting with Flamestone and followed by Relief.Together with the new patterns from the 1960s like Azur, Rune and Cordial, it became a successful business both for export and the home market. The three tower in the hallmark comes from the City Coat of Arms of Copenhagen.
