Dear Reader

Mother's day is one of the holidays of the year with a more unique story, as some would agree. It is celebrated at different dates in different countries. Here in Denmark the date is the second sunday in May, which is the most common date.
Mother's day was invented by the author and women's rights activist Julia Ward Howe in the United States in 1872. That mother's day ended up as the second sunday in May is down to Anna Jarvis, who made the day recognized, when she started the tradition in 1908. Mother's day has been an official holiday in the United States since 1914.
Here in Denmark the day was first celebrated by the baptist congregation in Rønne, Bornholm in 1910, but the actual establishment of the day in Denmark was not until 1929, when the association of Allied Brother's in Arms used the day to collect money for war widows and mothers, who had lost a son.
Mother's day has led to many traditions in connection with the day from flowers and cards to mother's day plates, which Bing & Grondahl was the first to issue in 1969 as the first.

Royal Copenhagen mother's day plates
Royal Copenhagen issued mother's day plates in the period between 1971 and 1989. What is special about the Royal Copenhagen mother's day plates is that they actually consisted of a number of differing series and one that falls outside the rest.
The first series, which was individual in its style, was issued between 1971 and 1977, in this series the depiction on the plates were first stylished mother's with children from different countries and later mermaids etc.
From 1978 to 1982 the series had classic mother and child depictions with a change in the drawing style between 1980 and 1982.
1982 was a special year as Royal Copenhagen issued two mother's day plates this year. One was the last in the series of mother and child depictions and the other the first in the series of animals based on the Royal Copenhagen figurines. This series lasted from 1982 to 1987.
No mother's day plate was issued by Royal Copenhagen in 1988, but a final one was issued in 1989. It was markedly different from the other mother's day plates and depicts a fisherman's wife and children stand near the sea looking for the fisherman returning home.

Desiree mother's day plates
The porcelain factory Desiree also issued a series of mother's day plates that lasted from 1970 to 1994. The series from Desiree had the same basic design in the depictions from start to finish, but the first three plates had both a mother and a child, while the plates from 1973 and onwards took the children as their theme. The depiction was a boy and/or a girl often in nature, where they entertained themselves in a myriad of ways.
