Kay Bojesen and his wooden toys

Silversmith and designer Kay Bojesen (1886 – 1958) had a very special talent, he was able to bring wood to life, and he became world-famous for creating wooden toys that had soul. With more than 2000 pieces to his name, Kay Bojesen was one of Denmark’s most prolific artisans in the 20th century.

He is best known for his playful and cheerful monkeys, royal life guards and other wooden toys, but his wide-ranging production also includes jewellery, cutlery, teapots and silver goblets.
