This quintessential Flora Danica soup tureen features a motif of rich, hand-painted botanical illustrations taken directly from the collection's namesake Danish atlas of botany. Royal Copenhagen porcelain is crafted with meticulous skill and artistry, and the underside of each piece is labeled with the Latin name of the flowers depicted in the design. Distinguishing this particular piece are representations of Lavatera thuringiaca, garden tree-mallow, and Viola arvensis, or the European field pansy. 

Royal Copenhagen has been synonymous with royalty since its inception. Founded in 1775, 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 original and inspired products of the European art industry from the golden age of porcelain. The resplendent Flora Danica collection has remained the crowning achievement of the European decorative arts for over 200 years and is one of the last luxury services still in production. 

Features "Royal Copenhagen" marks and Latin name of flowers on the underside, circa 20th century
