Christmas plates - must be Royal Copenhagen

When you think of Christmas plates, the names of Royal Copenhagen and Bing and Grondahl come first to mind. Haven't we all looked to see which year's pattern is our favourite or which year has special meaning for us. They have been making these treasures from 1895 to the present day - wow!! Each year a different celebratory Christmas plate has been produced. I have a few and some are featured here along with other souvenir or memorial plates. Email me for prices (most in the $45 - $65 range) or if you are looking for more information dgeisler@paradise.net.nz. Adding more in the future so check back!

What lovely Christmas gifts or hostess treats (maybe their birthday, anniversary or special year) for your favourite people this Christmas!
