Porcelain Dinnerware Flora Danica Royal Copenhagen
The Flora Danica porcelain set, based on a botanical book of the same name, is considered one of the greatest artistic craftsmanship achievements in Denmark. Originally created by one of the greatest porcelain painters Johann Christoph Bayer in 1790, it was commissioned by King Christian VII to the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory as a gift to Tsarina Catharine II of Russia. Catherine the Great died in 1796, before the design of the 1,802 pieces, which took a total of 12 years to bring to whole, was completed.Porcelain Round Dish Flora Danica Royal Copenhagen
Meticulously hand painted and beautifully decorated, each piece of dinnerware from the collection is a delightful work of art. I especially love the round dish above. The colors and the details are simply exquisite.
