A work of scientific examination as well as artistic mastery, these designs are culled from George Christian Oeder's 1771 publication Flora Danica (Flowers of Denmark), an encyclopedia including 3,000 hand-colored prints depicting every wild plant known to exist in Denmark, including mosses, fungi, ferns and flowers. In 1790, King Christian VII of Denmark ordered a set of porcelain decorated with exact copies of Oeder's plates, and thus Royal Copenhagen's Flora Danica collection was born. Adored by royalty since its first inception, it is perhaps the world's most prestigious porcelain pattern made today.
