In this exceptionally rare, hand-painted set of porcelain fish plates, the impeccable artistry of Royal Copenhagen’s legendary Flora Danica pattern is truly brought to life. Flora Danica is widely celebrated for the motif’s extraordinary, highly detailed illustrations of native flowers of Denmark. However, these plates represent a very special service commissioned to display only species of fish. Each plate displays a unique illustration of a specific species of fish, while the creature’s Latin name is inscribed on the reverse. Accented with a delicately gilded edge, this set is a testament to the skill and talent of Royal Copenhagen artists.

Once the porcelain supplier to the Queen of Denmark, Royal Copenhagen is known throughout the world for their quality craftsmanship and creative innovation. Founded in 1775 under the authority of Queen Juliane Marie, the first pieces ever produced were complex dining services for the Danish Royal Family. In 1790, Royal Copenhagen unveiled their Flora Danica pattern, now considered one of the most important and celebrated porcelain motifs ever created.
