Flora Danica porcelain

Flora Danica porcelain. Made 1790-1803 at the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory, decorated with botanical drawings of Denmark’s flora. Tradition has it that it was commisioned as a gift for Catharine the Great of Russia, who died, however, before the set was finished. It is still used by the Royal Family on special occasions.
