This success triggered off a whole new artistic renaissance which was to affect every aspect of the factory's porcelain production, including the production of figures, the field in which Christian Thomsen was to play a prominent role. Besides figures and vases he designed and carved 36 different motifs for Christmas and commemorative plates and reconstructed a number of pre-1800 designs, the original moulds of which had been last.
Further he found time to design book covers and bindings for the Copenhagen publisher Gyldendal.
A second mark will usually mean that the piece is worth less depending on the rarity and popularity of the piece, as seconds were sold at a 25-30% discount at the factory shop.
The pieces I come across most often marked as seconds are those from the 1950s and 1960s from the Tenera and Baca series under the direction of Nils Thorsson.
