Royal Copenhagen porcelain figural group Wave and Rock, on interior with
Wave and Rock, possibly the most iconic Royal Copenhagen figurine, was modelled after the original marble sculpture Vågen och stranden 1897 (The Wave and the Beach) by Theodor Lundberg (Swedish 1852-1926). There are two versions of the original marble, both located in Stockholm, Sweden. The first is owned by The King of Sweden and located in Stockholm Castle, and the second is in the Swedish National Museum. Royal Copenhagen began to produce Wave and Rock in approximately 1911, and it remained in production through the 20th century. The piece is modelled as a naked young man manacled to a rock at the sea's edge, embraced by a naked woman with flowing hair, naturalistically painted.
