Kay Bojesen designed these two happy skiers towards the end of the 1940s. The happy girl skier with the red bobble hat and checked jacket is called Datti, which was the pet-name of Kay Bojesen’s daughter-in-law Ruth (married to Otto). The name of the male skier, Boje, was the pet-name of Bojesen’s son Otto. The original wooden figures are very rare, as they were only produced in small series. With their cheerful expressions, this pair of skiers always make people smile, and they are all set to conquer Danish living rooms and homes again in this relaunch. Both skiers are made of painted beech in the same way as the Royal Guardsman. The skiers stand 15.5 cm tall.

Kay Bojesen Denmark

Kay Bojesen was a Danish designer, specializes in wooden toys. World famous are his wooden animals, but also his cutlery and crockery. With his paternal attitude, unyielding optimism and mantra that good design should be personal, warm and lively, Kay Bojesen could never be described as stiff as wood, quite the contrary! And yet, throughout his life, wood was his preferred medium, and the breadth of Kay Bojesen’s work is vast: from puffins and songbirds to rabbits and cool monkeys.
