The Designer – Sven Vestergaard was hired as a 16-year-old at Royal Copenhagen in 1952. He started as an apprentice in the Department of overglaze, taking into account every single detail, which is seen in all his works.
In 1959 Sven Vestergaard needed to try something new and therefore switched to the advertising industry, where he made illustrations for various advertising agencies and newspapers.
In 1975, a vacancy arises as an illustrator at Royal Copenhagen’s design department and Sven Vestergaard returned to his roots.
Since 1986, he designed the motifs for Royal Copenhagen’s famous Christmas plates. Although he in 1989 started his own studio, he still designs Christmas plates and other things for Royal Copenhagen on a freelance basis.

The Brand – Royal Copenhagen, Founded by a Queen in 1775. Juliane Marie was known as a modern queen and a strong supporter of the country. It was the task of the reigning monarch to safeguard the country’s economic health with the development of domestic products and services. Her greatest legacy was founding the Royal Danish Porcelain Factory in 1775. In the 1700’s, it was good diplomatic practice amongst royalty and aristocracy to give fine porcelain as gifts. Following Danish defeat at the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801, Lord Nelson bought Royal Copenhagen porcelain for his beloved Lady Hamilton. The Danes lost the battle. But a love of Danish porcelain was victorious.
