The impeccable artistry of Royal Copenhagen’s Flora Danica porcelain is on display in this rare crustacean plate. Flora Danica is widely celebrated for the motif’s highly detailed illustrations of native flowers of Denmark. However, this plate represents a very special service commissioned to display only crustaceans. Hand-painted at its center is a life-like representation of the Nephrops norvegicus, or Norway lobster. As with all Flora Danica, the creature’s Latin name is inscribed on the reverse. Accented with a delicately gilded edge, this plate is a testament to the skill and talent of Royal Copenhagen artists. 

Once the porcelain supplier to the Queen of Denmark, Royal Copenhagen is known throughout the world for their quality craftsmanship and creative innovation. Founded in 1775 under the authority of Queen Juliane Marie, the first pieces ever produced were complex dining services for the Danish Royal Family. In 1790, Royal Copenhagen unveiled their Flora Danica pattern, now considered one of the most important and celebrated porcelain motifs ever created.
