From Elton John, Celine Dion to the Europian Royal families – Royal Copenhagen has served them with Pride!

For almost a century the Royal Danish Porcelain Manufactory was run by the Royal Family. Royal Copenhagen’s products are exclusive status symbols for generations of royal families and nobility.
 
For over two centuries, (Now) Royal Copenhagen has supplied homes in Denmark and internationally with art and design, functioning as a playground and workplace for craftsmen, designers and artists who were bold enough to make their mark on posterity by challenging their own time.

Today, Royal Copenhagen is a world-famous brand known for its exclusive, high quality porcelain, selling products that delight collectors and new generations of customers with a contemporary international profile worldwide.

In 1790, Royal Copenhagen brought out its now famous Flora Danica, The world’s most prestigious dinnerware, and one of the last luxury services still in existence from the 18th century.

To this very day Flora Danica is still moulded and painted by hand as it was more than 200 years ago. Its elite clientele includes the likes of Elton John, Celine Dion and the European Royal family.

For the records, of the 1,802 pieces of the original Flora Danica service delivered in 1803, 1,530 survive to the present day. Part of this service still graces the royal table of Queen Margrethe II on state occasions at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen.

Did you know… The brushes used by porcelain painters are made from the hairs at the tip of a cow’s ears or alternatively the hairs from a reindeer’s stomach. These hairs have a special hard-wearing quality that ordinary brush hairs cannot match. With thousands of delicate brushstrokes for each piece, subtle airbrush effects and well-calibrated sponge applications, the decorators and painters turn each object into a unique masterpiece. Royal Copenhagen’s outstanding collection of Home Decoration items are made with respect for art and design.
