Inspired by one of Denmark's national symbols on the courtyard at Amalienborg Palace, Kay Bojesen created his hand-painted guardsmen in 1942. Ever since, the Standard-bearer has been a much-loved guest on at birthday celebrations and has become a design icon for the home. A great gift idea that will last a lifetime for both children and adults.
Like all figures from the Kay Bojesen Denmark collection the standard-bearer is a collector's item. The wooden figures which have found many friends worldwide find their place in cabinets and shelves not only in children's rooms but also in the home or office.
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.
