Royal Copenhagen identity
Royal Copenhagen is known worldwide for being Danish, and for classic blue and white porcelain, made and painted by hand. In a time where luxury is defined by quality, connectedness, responsible consumption, and tastefulness in all aspects of life, Royal Copenhagen’s untiring enthusiasm, meticulous craftsmanship and an inherent desire to honour and reimagine a proud heritage are as relevant as ever.
Blue Fluted Plain
Like the whispering waves of the ocean, the hand-painted blue lines of the Blue Fluted Plain pattern tell a story of a timeless aesthetic that has inspired all other Royal Copenhagen patterns. Reconsidered and painted onto new shapes and in new colors, Blue Fluted Plain, also known as Pattern No.1, continues to captivate with the classic versatility, delicate form and careful craftsmanship of each piece. The pattern of a Blue Fluted Dinner Plate is made up of 762 individual brushstrokes.
Senior Design Lead, Royal Copenhagen
The Royal Danish Porcelain Factory was founded in 1775 under the wing of Queen Juliane Marie. With a good grasp of the needs of the time and an appreciation of science, the Queen saw that knowledge and the use of local raw materials would make local life better. Today, each object passes through up to thirty pairs of hands – from clay to moulding, painting, firing, glazing and packing. Each pair of hands forms a link in a chain of craftsmanship that has evolved over 240 years at Royal Copenhagen.
The Royal Copenhagen Flagship Store
Since 1911, Royal Copenhagen Flagship Store has been centrally located in Copenhagen in one of the city’s most historic renaissance buildings. At the Flagship Store you can explore the historic collections of Royal Copenhagen and find new treasures for special occasions and the everyday.
The signature of a Blue Painter
A Blue Painter spends four years learning their craft. The delicate decoration is like the painter’s signature; at a glance the decorations may appear identical but each painter is able to immediately recognise their own and their colleagues work.
