Description - Dahl-Jensen Porcelain Figurines by Caroline Pope
Lovely Danish porcelain figurines by the Dahl-Jensen company are showcased in this first and superb reference for collectors. Celebrated designer Jens Peter Dahl-Jensen worked for the Bing & Grohdahl company before founding his own firm in 1925. He modeled new sculptures, particularly creating a wonderful series representing models from the Far East, which he produced as figurines in the early days of the companys growth. Later, he acquired the works of other artists to enlarge the model collection. Of the almost 400 figurines the factory produced, Dahl-Jensen himself sculpted about 280. All the known figurines made by the company are included, arranged in both numerical and subject matter order, for easy reference. Over 350 color photographs display the natural wildlife and charming people that occupy this high quality line of sculpture. They are growing in popularity among collectors and presently are surprisingly affordable. Current values are reflected in the captions.
