Flora Danica is one of the world's most exclusive dinner services, originating from the end of the eighteenth century, considered the golden age of porcelain. Flora Danica is the only large luxury service from that period still in production today. The original Flora Danica service took 18 years to complete and it has remained in the possession of the Danish Royal Family. The original service is a national treasure, with some parts kept at Rosenborg Castle and some at Christianborg, where the service is used for gala dinners and state occasions. The service gets both its name and motifs from the original botanical dictionary "Flora Danica", meaning "Flowers of Denmark", in which minutely detailed copperplates illustrated Denmark's abundant flora in exacting detail. Every piece of the service is a work of art in itself and no two are painted the same. The service features 3000 different floral motifs. Each of the many details are modeled and cut out by hand, then the flowers are painted freehand, exactly as they were more than 200 years ago. Today Flora Danica can be found in royal palaces and home of distinction worldwide. From the Royal Copenhagen website, "A classic both blends in and stands out; in any given context. It belongs to no time, but leaves its mark on all times. It is always relevant, always modern, always beautiful. Immerse in the gallery and witness the immortality of a most beloved classic: Flora Danica".

About Royal Copenhagen (Manufacturer)

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.
