Royal Copenhagen Flora Danica

Flora Danica is the most prestigious hand – painted dinner service in production today. In 1735, the Swedish botanist Carl von Linné published his system for naming flora , today acknowledged as the foundation of modern botanical classification. Following this, an encyclopaedia of the national flora was produced in Denmark which included in excess of 3000 hand coloured prints produced between 1761 and 1883.

On August 28th 1790, the royal librarian in Copenhagen sent all available drawings to the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory as the source for the decoration of a luxurious dinner service commissioned by Crown Prince Frederik, later King Frederik VI. It was an immense task and became the life’s work of one of the most gifted artists of the 18th century, Johann Christoph Bayer. This hand-painted service was intended as a gift to Catherine II of Russia but unfortunately, the Czarina died during the 12 years it was in production.

The Flora Danica service was first used on January 29th 1803 for the King’s birthday banquet. Of the 1802 pieces delivered in 1803 , 1530 remain today. Selected pieces are still used on state occasions at Amalienborg Palace , the balance being held at the Rosenborg Castle museum .

No further pieces were produced until 1863 when the Danish Princess Alexandra married the Prince of Wales, later to become King Edward VII. Today, this hand - painted service is at Windsor Castle and is used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
