Dear Reader

If you are asked to envoke the feeling of true love, what do you think of?
 
Well, what will it be? - Was it the sight of the new sofa? The shiny new motorbike? Hopefully not... - To me true love is a feeling of joy and thankfulness. It makes the world change colour, everything smiles and shines around you. - I most easily envoke the feeling by thinking of the morning, when my husband and I sat with our newborn daughter in our arms... It was a feeling of great thankfulness and joy. It was without comparison the greatest feeling that I have had until that day.
 
When the great artists of the past were asked to draw motifs for mother's day plates, it is clear that the feeling of pure motherly love has inspired many fantastic motifs. - The love shines through many of these plate. Let me show you some examples here.
Pure love - Heidelberg mother's day plates
The loving motifs combined with the fact that they can both be used for decoration and to serve a meal filled with love has led to many having started to buy mother's day plates not just for mother's day, but all year round. - On the picture we see Royal Heidelberg mother's day plates.
Bing & Grondahl mother's day plates
When we look at animals and animal children, it is hard not to be affected... and feel the love. - Bing & Grondahl were the first in Denmark to issue a mother's day plate. - It was issued in 1969 and the motif was a Cocker Spaniel with its cute happy puppys. - A fantastic motif and it was a huge success. - Within a year the price rose from DKK 18 (As far as I know) to DKK 3000. - It was this plate that sparked the plate rush in Denmark.
 
The series of mother's day plates with motifs of animal mothers and their children were a huge hit and in the 70's huge numbers were produced each year. - These can be bought cheaply today, but if you are looking for a recent year, you will find that many are sold out or rather expensive. The motif from 2019 is a hippo with its calf and costs DKK 499.
