With a gold, serrated (sawtooth) edge, this is a marvelous example in the Flora Danica line.
It is an 8 3/4" plate in fine - virtually 'mint' condition.
It depicts the flower known as Medicaga Falcata. Pretty and delicate. The mark dates it to 1984-1991.
This is a direct quote from the factory that produces this most desired of all Royal Copenhagen products:
"Of all the magnificent services from the 18th century, the Flora Danica porcelain service is the only one still in production. This magnificent service was created in what has since been named the Golden Age of porcelain. Today it is still considered one of the world´s most luxurious services.
The service’s name and decorations stem from the botanical work Flora Danica whose 51 volumes and total of 3.060 coloured copper prints were issued in the period 1761-1883. The wide-ranging work reproduced in minute detail the Danish flora. The great task of transcribing the decorations to the porcelain became the life’s work of one man – Johann Christoph Bayer. He undertook the majority of the painting of the 1,802 pieces. A task which took him 12 years. The copper prints were carefully copied onto the porcelain and if he was in doubt about any detail he sent a messenger to the Botanical Gardens. He would then study the plant to ensure that the reproduction was correct."
