Flora Danica Reindeer Dinner Plate

US$3,850

About

A reindeer is the star of the snowy scene on this extraordinarily rare porcelain dinner plate. Crafted by Royal Copenhagen, it is part of the firm's highly celebrated Flora Danica collection. Flora Danica is known worldwide for its intricate and highly detailed illustrations of the native flowers of Denmark. This dish, however, was crafted as part of a very rare series painted with woodland animals, and is perhaps the only of its kind to have ever been made. As with all Flora Danica pieces, this Latin name of the animal, Rangifer tarandus, is written on the reverse. The hand-painted motif is perfectly complemented by vibrant gilt borders. Features the Royal Copenhagen mark and style number #239/3549. 20th century. Measures: 10 1/8" diameter x 1 3/8" high.

About the Maker

Royal Copenhagen

Producers of the finest in Danish porcelain, Royal Copenhagen is a company steeped in tradition. Its celebrated blue-and-white china patterns as well as its famed hallmark depicting the royal crown and three waves — symbolizing the monarch who founded the company and the three major waterways of Denmark — are emblems of master craftsmanship.Royal Copenhagen was founded in 1775 by Queen Juliane Marie. Years earlier, after the death of her husband, King Frederick V, Juliane’s stepson ascended the throne. Shortly into his reign, he went insane, and the Queen became the head of Denmark and its small empire. She sought to improve Denmark’s economy and founded factories around the country to promote domestic growth and international trade. Royal Copenhagen was one of the first of these. Royal Copenhagen first made dinnerware and vases with blue-and-white motifs inspired by Chinese porcelain, then the rage in aristocratic Europe. Many of these designs are still made today.Apart from its classic patterns, Royal Copenhagen has adapted to the changing styles of time and appeals to many different tastes. Their prolific body of work includes Rococo-style porcelain statues that incorporate stylistic floral patterns in an Art Nouveau style, as well as modern vases by such noted 20th century Danish ceramists as Axel Salto. Whether used for special occasions or displayed as part of a design collection, Royal Copenhagen pieces represent a legacy of the highest quality.Find authentic Royal Copenhagen dinner plates, decorative objects and other items on 1stDibs.
