Dating royal copenhagen figurines
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.
We would like to make more theme pages based on artists or motives.When we examine the marking on your figurine, we find the letter “E” in “Denmark” has the dash marking beneath it.According to our chart above, this indicates that the figurine was made in 1956.This was done by scratching through the 3 wavy blue lines with a diamond cutter.These pieces were sold with a 25-30% discount at the factory shop.
If you don’t, however, they can lead you well astray of the truth.
