    Give a unique version of man's best friend, crafted in oak. Kay Bojesen has created many dogs, and Tim is the name of this quirky little terrier, designed in 1935. With its movable head tilted alertly to one side and its tail in the air, Tim is one of Kay Bojesen's most expressive animals, and he will quickly become a dear friend of the family. A great gift idea for anyone that appreciates Danish design - and a present that will last a lifetime, from christening through to future home-making.

    Kay Bojesen

    Kay Bojesen (1886-1958) was an apprentice of Georg Jensen, training as a silversmith from 1906. After a few years in Germany and France, he began working as a silversmith in Copenhagen. Happily, Kay Bojesen was far too curious to restrict himself to the work of refining metals, and in the 1920s he began experimenting with other materials. In the course of his exploration, he discovered wood as a material with very special possibilities for industrial treatment and styling. This discovery led to the classic guardsmen and a whole zoological garden taking shape between his hands. The stainless steel edition of a silver cutlery series from 1938 was awarded the Grand Prix at the Biennale exhibition in Milan in 1951, and came to be known as Grand Prix flatware. In 1952 Kay Bojesen became Silversmith by Appointment to H.M. the King of Denmark. In 1990, Rosendahl obtained the rights to Kay Bojesen's products.
