Royal Copenhagen Langelinie
« on: November 08, 2007, 08:02:36 PM »
Well, she has lost her head twice, poor thing! The first time was in the 70's I believe and the last time was a couple of years ago. The first head was never recovered ( a well known artist, Jens J?rgen Thorsen hinted that he had done the deed, but he is the type to say that just for the publicity )the second was  recovered and stuck  back on.

An interesting detail here, there is a company (can't remember the name right now, old age, sorry   :)) that owns the copyright to The Little Mermaid; no-one is allowed to portray her on " objects for sale" as she actually is. Any such objects have to deviate from the actual sculpture in some way.. head turned in the opposite direction, tail turned downwards etc.

 :pst: Actually, if you are ever coming to Copenhagen, have her as your last sight-to-see; she is so teeny weeny and visitors are always disappointed.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Nice pieces with Aluminia marks on your RC plaquettes there, both date marked for 1953.

Gosh, I'd not realised they were so old Lynne, thank you. How do the date marks work then?
Cheers!

Here you go...

for Royal Copenhagen

http://www.jamiri.dk/Royal-Copenhagen-mark.htm

for Aluminia

http://www.jamiri.dk/aluminia-mark.htm

Jamiri's site is brilliant for Royal Copenhagen - not everything is easily worked out (there is more that is in Danish rather than English so you have to work out the tab meanings... :) )

Brilliant, thanks Lynne. (I'll dig out my Danish words and phrases book - my small amount of Danish is well-rusty having not been used for almost 30 years!::))
Cheers!
