Designer Kay Bojesen

Kay Bojesen (1886–1958) was an apprentice of Georg Jensen, training as a silversmith in 1910. After a few years in Germany and France, he began working as a silversmith in Copenhagen. In the 1930s he realised there was something particularly lively about wood, and his wooden figures have made him one of the great pioneers of Danish art manufacture. Happily, Kay Bojesen was far too curious to restrict himself to the work of refining metals, and 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.

Kay Bojesen's Red/White Lacquered Wood Santa poseable figure features a Bag and Walking Stick. An exquisite heirloom quality Danish wooden figurine that will brighten up any home from Rosendahl, the Danish toy manufacturer. The joyful Kay Bojesen Santa Claus figurine stands out because of its timeless design and beautiful (high-quality) construction. The Bojesen Santa Claus was designed by Danish designer Kay Bojesen in the early 1950s. With his grey beard and plump belly, Santa Claus peeks out from under his red hat with a cheerful sparkle in his eye, while his hands grasp a walking stick and bag.
