Hold an item of Flora Danica porcelain and you hold a little bit of Danish history in your hand. Flora Danica is unbreakably linked to the Danish Royal Family. Each exquisite piece represents a story of royalty, diplomacy and deep respect; of the life's work of talented illustrators; of fine excellent craftsmanship and rare skills, of meticulous attention to detail and of precious porcelain. The Flora Danica service is hand painted after the original Flora Danica botanical encyclopedia from the 18th century. Each flower painting is inspired by the same copper print, and the variations demonstrate how a painter uses her creative freedom to make unique products. Thus, if you order a Flora Danica piece you can never know exactly how the motif will look. And that, we believe, is the true beauty of Flora Danica.
