  • Description

    Learn with Kay Bojesen's sparrows on a plank. The seven colourful sparrows, designed by Kay Bojesen in 1935, are each named after a different day of the week, thus offering an obvious, new and different way of learning the days of the week. There are magnets inside the birds and the plank, so the birds can be moved to and fro, giving rise to many hours of educational play. The seven sparrows are a fun gift idea for collectors, pre-schoolers and the young-at-heart. With its classic design, this gift will last a lifetime and can then be passed on down the generations.

    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.
