Flora Danica is Royal Copenhagen's most prestigious dinnerware. Production of the design restarted in 1863, initialy, as gifts between royal families. It was the artist Johann Christoph Bayer, who painted most of the motifs on the first Flora Danica service. That are based on an earlier book, depicting Flora, that he had contributed to.
Each part is so unique and difficult to make that the price is naturally high. Royal Copenhagen Flora Danica is a magnificent work of fine details and each flower and decoration is carefully hand painted from the original Flora Danica plates as a template.It also requires many firings before each part is finished. Mark on the base is for the latin name of the Flora decoration. Cup and Saucer Measures 2.5. Saucer has a diameter of 4.75 (12 cm). Please examine photographs as they are an important part of my description.
