Denmark - Expo Ghent 1913

Denmark at the Exhibition Expo Ghent 1913

The Danish section, which had been conceived in a judicious spirit by its general commissioner, Mr. Poulsen, occupied a pavilion in the centre of the hall which, by its elegance and coquetry, attracted the attention of the visitor. Denmark had made a point of distinguishing itself by the strength and value of its art industries. There were many objects in chased copper, silver, decorative majolica, and a considerable and varied collection of porcelain from the Royal Copenhagen Factory. The 1913 Exhibition provided an opportunity for these establishments, whose manufactures are prized by connoisseurs, to make a popular demonstration. The visitors examined the products at length, admiring the delicate colours, the harmonious shapes and the ornamental appearance; it was a great success.
