At The Universal Exposition of 1889 (Exposition Universelle de 1889), in Paris, Royal Copenhagen won the Grand Prix in the field of porcelain, with pieces designed by Krog.
Royal Copenhagen opened a store in Paris, in 1890, and 7 years later in the fashionable “Old Bond Street” in London.
Inspired by Chinese porcelain, Frantz Heinrich Müller created in the late 1770s, dinnerware and vases with blue motifs on white porcelain and elegant fluting along the edge – the Blue Fluted porcelain, that Royal Copenhagen is famous for today.
Unfortunately, the factory had financial problems, and the King had to step in and take over in 1779.
From 1913 it was also used at air painted faience32.
Hand painted marking started on colored art faience in 1901-1902.
In 1790, the extensive work of creating the famous and extremely expensive dinner service, Flora Danica begins, allegedly commissioned by the Danish King, Christian VII, as a gift to Empress Catherine II of Russia – 1802 pieces with gilded edges and free-hand painted Danish floral motifs.
Flora Danica marked the first golden age for Royal Copenhagen, and was international recognized. By 1868, the factory got a private owner and in 1882, it was purchased by the faience factory, Aluminia.
Shortly into his reign, he became mentally ill and was unable to govern.
Thus Queen Juliane Marie became the head of Denmark (and Norway, which at that time was a part of the Danish Kingdom).
At the turn of the century, Royal Copenhagen was one of most innovative leaders in the field of porcelain, and their products were sold worldwide.
