This exquisite porcelain bread and butter plate from the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory was created in the legendary Flora Danica pattern, and is adorned with a colorful rendering of Vaccinium Oxycoccus L., also known as the common cranberry. Splendid detail, from the hand-painted design to the gilt-accented, reticulated rim and the flower's hand-lettered Latin name on the reverse, distinguishes this exceptional plate. 

 Flora Danica is regarded as one of the most prestigious and stunning patterns ever created, and has been synonymous with royalty and prestige for over two centuries. Commissioned in 1790 by King Christian VII of Denmark for Empress Catherine the Great of Russia, Flora Danica has become synonymous with royal prestige and has remained the crowning achievement of the European decorative arts for over 200 years. Today, the same meticulous craftsmanship is used in the production of the pattern. Designers at the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory must apprentice for four years before working on a Flora Danica piece, and even then they are under close supervision for several years. Flora Danica pieces are still given as official gifts by the Royal Danish Family and Danish government. 

 Features Royal Copenhagen mark, artist's initials and pattern number 20/3552 on the reverse 

 Dated 1969-1974 

 5 1/2" diameter
