Bing & Grondahl was a Danish porcelain manufacturer founded in 1853 by Frederik Vilhelm Grondahl, who was a sculptor, along with two merchant brothers,  Meyer Hermann Bing and Jacob Herman Bing.  In 1895, Bing & Grondahl created the first in their series of Christmas plates which have been continually released for more than 100 years. The plates have traditional winter scenes in blue and white and are extremely popular with collectors.  Not to be outdone, Royal Copenhagen, originally called "Royal Porcelain Factory" released their own line of Christmas blue and white plates in 1908.  Royal Porcelain Factory is a Danish manufacturer of porcelain products and was founded in Copenhagen in 1775 under the protection of Danish Dowager Queen Juliane Marie.  In 1987 Royal Porcelain Factory acquired Bing & Grondahl, who was their largest competitor, the new company, which includes other mergers, is called "Royal Copenhagen".
