This impressive porcelain plate by Royal Copenhagen features the firm's famed Flora Danica motif. However, rather than the native flowers more typically used in Flora Danica porcelain, this plate is part of a rare subset of the pattern that captures crustaceans native to Denmark. The Cancer pagurus, or brown crab, is hand-painted at the center with lifelike detail, while its Latin name is inscribed on the reverse. Accented with a delicately gilded edge, this plate embodies the skill and artistry of Royal Copenhagen creations. 

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.
