This hand-painted porcelain plate by Royal Copenhagen is crafted in the firm's highly celebrated Flora Danica pattern. Unlike the majority of Flora Danica, which features the native flora of Denmark, this plate is part of a very rare series painted with crustaceans. The Homarus vulgaris, or European lobster, is depicted at the center of the plate in lifelike detail, while its Latin name is inscribed on the reverse. The hand-painted motif is perfectly complemented by vibrant gilt borders. 

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.
