Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Vase

  • Copenhagen, Denmark 1953
  • Dimensions: 7 1/2 inches height

Royal Copenhagen is the oldest and most respected manufacturer of porcelain in Denmark. This company has been making porcelain since 1775. The factory was actually founded by a chemist, Franz Heinrich Muller. He imported a chrysanthemum motif from China and developed it in Denmark. The 18th century was the pinnacle of blue painting in porcelain. At that time, European factories looked to China in order to emulate their porcelain and used it for inspiration.

In the 18th century, they adapted a factory mark which consists of 3 wavy lines. These lines symbolize Denmark’s three straights – Storebaelt, Lillebaelt, and Oresund. Over the years, the firm acquired Georg Jensen in 1972 and Bing and Grondahl in 1987. Royal Copenhagen is renowned for its timeless design, outstanding quality, and meticulously crafted porcelain.

Delicately decorated with flowers in blue and green, this 20th century Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Vase resides on a white background. It is quite elegant with its design of stylized floral decoration.
