Royal Copenhagen is the preeminent Danish manufacturer of tableware, furniture and home décor. The company was established in 1775 by Frantz Heinrich Müller under the patronage of the Danish Royal family. From its humble beginnings inside a converted post office, Royal Copenhagen has grown into a multimillion-dollar company with a workforce of over 500 people and its products are sold in some of the finest establishments around the globe.
The company’s original design was heavily influenced by two factors – the admiration for porcelain products imported from China and the discovery of a rich deposit of cobalt in neighboring Norway (which at the time was part of the Danish geostate, the remnants of the Kalmar Union).
This led to the design and subsequent production of porcelain products with the iconic Musselmalet (Blue Fluted) painting. Although the quality of material, manufacturing and design have grown by leaps and bounds since then, the company’s ethos of respect for tradition, renewal and innovation remains unchanged. The continued popularity of Royal Copenhagen collectibles, particularly the annual lineup of
figurines, is a great testament to the quality of its products.
The company’s assortment of hand-made, hand-painted and hand-glazed porcelain goes way beyond Royal Copenhagen plates and vases – it boasts of a lineup of hundreds of products, such as the gorgeous Black Fluted Teapot with brass handle or 37 cl Blue Elements Milk Jug which bears the distinctive Royal Copenhagen patterns.
On the home décor front, you really must take a look at the pink Big Easter Egg Tulip or the lilac Hydrangea Vase – both will inject your living spaces with the X factor.
Be it for the kitchen, bedroom or even balcony, Royal Copenhagen will have something for your home.
