12 pieces of Blue Flower by Royal Copenhagen, comprised of 11 luncheon plates and one serving platter. The platter measures 14" wide, 11" deep, and 2" high. The plates measure 7 7/8". All the designs are hand painted, and show variation in the floral designs. All the plates are differently. The mark on the backs of plates and platter are the Copenhagen mark from 1870-1890, and is comprised of three lines with other blue inscriptions. The plates and platter are edged with the braided design, in high relief, lending texture and detail to the surface. Platter has a slight chip on the edge, near the middle, and there is a very slight visible hairline which I could not photograph, so it is considered "as is", though is quite functional. The plates are all without chips or cracks, and some have visible spots of iron oxide, which was common in earlier porcelain. Royal Copenhagen began production in 1775, as a royal company, but became a private corporation in the late 19th century. The quality of porcelain is always fine, and the company has always been known for its very beautiful dinnerware. Note that the porcelain is crisp white, and the blue is a soft cobalt (some of the images appear to have a bit of blue/green to the color). Price listed is for all pieces, none are sold separately. Shipping via USPS with special packing and insurance.
