Great Danes: French Bulldog Collectibles from Denmark 

"Article by Gary Bachman reprinted with permission from Just Frenchies magazine, Volume 3, Number 2 Spring 2005."


The Danish porcelain Frenchies have a unique look and reflect a sensibility quite different from the German and other European models. Their facial expressions are serious and melancholic, poses are classical yet somewhat unusual and the glazes are thick and rich. The colors reflect the Art Nouveau palette: pinks, greys and lavenders. The rare "tiger" brindles are a deep mahogany color and unmatched by those of any other manufacturer.

There were 3 important factories: Dahl Jensen (1925-1984), Royal Copenhagen (1775-present) and Bing & Grondahl (1853 and merged with Royal Copenhagen in 1987).

There were also 3 important sculptors: Dahl Jensen (1874-1960) who worked for B&G before opening his own factory in 1925, and Lauritz Jensen (1859-1935) and Knud Khyn (1880-1969) who created masterworks for Royal Copenhagen. Additionally, there were 5 other artists who made Frenchie models. Knud Moller designed a small French Bulldog for Royal Copenhagen in 1913. Sophus Jensen-Kromand, who worked for B&G from 1910-47, created a very remarkable pair of bookends. There is a B&G reclining Frenchie with a glaze that imitates bronze signed "R. Gauguin" which dates from the 1930s. And B&G also produced two white Frenchies by unknown artists. One is small and quite early in date and the other a superb Art Deco example.

With the exception of Royal Copenhagen few pieces were signed by the artists. Most have green hallmarks with initials and fractional numbers in green or blue. These are key to dating these pieces. There are several easily obtainable books about these factories for those interested in the dates of production of the Frenchies in their collections. "Seconds," or pieces which were not deemed first quality have a scratch through the mark on the base. Often though, the quality is indistinguishable from those considered best. The following survey illustrates all of the recorded French Bulldogs by the Danish factories. It is worthwhile to note that many have been out of production for decades and are now quite scarce.

Thanks to Jan Grebe, Françoise and Jean-Pierre Girard, Stuart King and 2 private collectors for images from their collections.

New Book

The French Bulldog

Whether the Frenchie in your life is wearing a “badger” collar and snoozing by your side or gaiting next to you in the Group ring on the way to Best in Show, you will delight in this extravagant celebration of a breed that has captured the hearts and imaginations of dog lovers the world over. As entertaining as it is authoritative, the first volume in Kennel Club Books’ new Classic series glistens with the personality and irresistible charm of this photogenic and fashion-forward dog, as illustrated in over 250 beautiful photographs.

Author Muriel P. Lee, editor of Just Frenchies magazine, has orchestrated the talents and insight of a dozen world-renowned canine specialists, each of whom has written on their area of Frenchie expertise.

The author, accompanied by breed judge Anne M. Hier, takes the reader on a grand tour of the French Bulldog in America from the 19th century to the present day. An overseas jaunt takes up to the shores of the breed’s homeland, France, as well as England, Australia and New Zealand.

The Frenchie’s talents are highlighted in chapters about therapy work, agility and obedience and doggie fashion. Other topics discussed include an insider’s look at judging in the show ring by breeder-judge Virginia Rowland, the breed’s health and well-being by Dr. Janice Grebe and breeding, whelping and infant puppy care.

The book is crowned by its two final chapters, lavishly illustrated exhibitions of Frenchie collectibles by antiques specialist Gary Bachman and the Frenchie in fine art by world-renowned 19th-century dog-painting expert William Secord.
