Royal Copenhagen 4187 Agnete & the Merman 55 cm Design Holger Christensen. Factory first and in mint and nice condition. A little bit of Wikki. (Danish) ('Agnete and the merman') is a Medieval Scandinavian ballad generally thought to be relatively late in its composition, perhaps from the eighteenth century.
In the ballad, a merman woos Agnethe to leave her children behind and come and live with him in the sea. She does so and has several children by him. She meets her mother, telling her about her new aquatic life. In most variants, she then abandons the merman and stays with her previous family.
This Ballad was an inspiration for several authors and poets like Hans Christian Andersen. Exiting Bird exhibtion in our Gallery.
