Flora Danica is considered one of the world's premium patterns, as each piece is handpainted and with a different design. We also occasionally have vintage pieces in stock.

Flora Danica is considered the most distinguished and costly dinner service in the world.  Today, this exclusive service is made exactly as it was more than 200 years ago, when Royal Copenhagen first started production.  From the finest preparation of the raw porcelain mass to the painting of the edges by the gold decorator with 24 carat gold, the creation of this service is truly a feat of craftsmanship. 

While the porcelain is still soft, the edges and perforations are cut out by hand.  Then the delicate flower decorations on the lids and handles are shaped, leaf-by-leaf, and stalk-by-stalk.  The illustrations are then copied from the original copperplate prints found in the botanical work.  Flora Danica, where the porcelain painters choose their motifs from among 700 different plates.  The flowers are painted with great care, and each colour must be fired before the next colour can be added.

The original Flora Danica dinner service was commissioned by King Christian VII from the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory in 1790. According to tradition, the service was to be a gift to Czarina Catherine II of Russia, but she died in 1796 before the 1,802 pieces were finished.  So the Danish King kept the Flora Danica service for him and it was first used at his birthday banquet on January 29, 1803.

Of the original pieces, more than 1,500 still remain. Today, they belong to the Danish Royal Family and Queen Margrethe II.  A piece of Flora Danica is the very flower of Danish craftsmanship. The dinner service's sumptuous, life-like decorations and the age-old traditions behind its creation, make Flora Danica truly a unique experience for the lovers of fine porcelain everywhere.
