About the Copenhagen Harbour 2013 Christmas Plate

The motif on this year’s Christmas Plate is The Little Mermaid designed by Sven Vestergaard. In all her beauty and wistfulness, she bids travellers welcome from her abode at the Copenhagen waterfront – the Langelinie. This year, she celebrates her centenary. She has risen from adventure origins, namely from her namesake: the famous and beloved H.C. Anderson’s fairy-tale. She was created by the sculptor Edvard Eriksen and has been displayed since 1913. The sculpture’s gaze is turned towards the vista of sea where the majestic Dannebrog, the royal yacht, lays at anchor. And, landwards, we see the faint outline of Copenhagen’s proud historical buildings – e.g. The Stock Exchange, Church of Our Saviour, the Town Hall and the Round Tower.
