Kay Bojesen Horse

By Rosendahl

  • Description

    A gift for life! This Kay Bojesen first saw the light of day in the beginning of the 1930s. With its proud stance, luxurious mane and reins at the ready, the horse invites us on an imaginary journey at a brisk gallop. Its soft curves and stiff legs give the horse the typical expression Kay Bojesen's wooden family of animals is known for: Playful contours that don't try to reflect those of real animals, but imaginative variations instead, which quickly find a place in any home. A great gift idea for a confirmation candidate or graduate - for weddings and all other memorable occasions.

    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.
