A beautiful reticulated dinner plate in the highly regarded Flora Danica pattern. Crafted by the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory, this plate features the meticulous and refined artistry for which Flora Danica is so renowned, from the fine hand-painted botanical motif to the delicate gilt trimming. First created as a gift for Czarina Catherine II of Russia in the late 18th century, the Flora Danica is now a symbol of royalty and prestige. It is based on George Christian Oeder's 1771 publication Flora Danica, an encyclopedia including 3,000 hand-colored copper plate prints depicting every wild plant known to exist in Denmark including mosses, fungi, ferns and flowers. Crown Prince Frederick, later King Frederick VI, was so intrigued by the tome that it inspired him to commission a dinner service for the Czarina. 

Features the Latin name of its hand-painted flower on the underside, as well as the Royal Copenhagen Denmark stamp and blue underglaze mark. 

9" diameter
