Flora Danica Soup Tureen by Royal Copenhagen

About

This quintessential Flora Danica soup tureen features a motif of rich, hand painted botanical illustrations taken directly from the collection's namesake Danish atlas of botany. Royal Copenhagen porcelain is crafted with meticulous skill and artistry, and the underside of each piece is labeled with the Latin name of the flowers depicted in the design. Distinguishing this particular piece are representations of Lavatera thuringiaca, garden tree-mallow, and Viola arvensis, or the European field pansy. Royal Copenhagen has been synonymous with royalty since its inception. Founded in 1775, the first pieces ever produced were complex dining services for the Danish Royal Family. In 1790, Royal Copenhagen unveiled their Flora Danica pattern, now considered one of the most original and inspired products of the European art industry from the golden age of porcelain. The resplendent Flora Danica collection has remained the crowning achievement of the European decorative arts for over 200 years and is one of the last luxury services still in production. Features "Royal Copenhagen" marks and Latin name of flowers on the underside, circa 20th century Measures: 9" high x 13" wide x 9" deep.

About Royal Copenhagen (Maker)

Producers of the finest in Danish porcelain, Royal Copenhagen is a company steeped in tradition. Its celebrated blue-and-white china patterns as well as its famed hallmark depicting the royal crown and three waves—symbolizing the monarch who founded the company and the three major waterways of Denmark—are emblems of master craftsmanship.


     Royal Copenhagen was founded in 1775 by Queen Juliane Marie. Years earlier, after the death of her husband, King Frederick V, Juliane’s stepson ascended the throne. Shortly into his reign, he went insane, and the Queen became the head of Denmark and its small empire. She sought to improve Denmark’s economy and founded factories around the country to promote domestic growth and international trade. Royal Copenhagen was one of the first of these. Royal Copenhagen first made dinnerware and vases with blue-and-white motifs inspired by Chinese porcelain, then the rage in aristocratic Europe. Many of these designs are still made today.


     Apart from its classic patterns, Royal Copenhagen has adapted to the changing styles of time and appeals to many different tastes. Their prolific body of work includes Rococo-style porcelain statues that incorporate stylistic floral patterns in an Art Nouveau style, as well as modern vases by such noted 20th century Danish ceramists as Axel Salto. Whether used for special occasions or displayed as part of a design collection, Royal Copenhagen pieces represent a legacy of the highest quality.
