This porcelain covered ginger jar by Royal Copenhagen is crafted in the firm's legendary Flora Danica pattern. Flora Danica ginger jars are extremely rare, and this example exhibits the superior artistry for which this pattern is known, from the masterful hand-painting and intricate gilding to the delicately formed applied flowers on the cover. Its body is adorned by not one, but two different plants, the Papaver Rhoeas L., or red poppy, and the Fragaria collina erhr., or the Alpine strawberry. In addition, the underside is labeled with the Latin name of each plant depicted in the design.

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 moss, 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.
