HC AndersenIn 1869 the fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen, during a visit at the manor house Basnæs, wrote to his friend Eduard Collin and asked him a favor:

"Could you please send me something I have forgotten - one  yard of ribbon for the Commanders Cross of the Order of Dannebrog to wear  around the neck. The width is known by Mr.Mørch who lives behind the Royal Theatre".
