For those of you who have followed my blog for a while, you have heard me talk several times about the iconic Danish porcelain company Royal Copenhagen. Royal Copenhagen, a purveyor to Her Majesty The Queen Of Denmark, was established in 1775 and is considered one of the most luxurious porcelain brands in the world.
I started to pick up my first Royal Copenhagen pieces at antique auctions in Sweden when I was just a young cat, and over the years I have built a nice, little collection that I never grow tired off.
All of Royal Copenhagen’s products are handmade in Denmark and my personal opinion is that is is hard to beat the quality and the esthetics — timeless understated elegance. Always right. No surprise that my husband and I picked Royal Copenhagen’s “Princess” as our wedding china (I was old enough to know what works for me! No mainstream nor mass produced here!).
Some 10 years ago a very brilliant young Danish design student, Karen Kjældgård-Larsen, had a vision (and a lot of courage & nerve, I must say!) to put a modern twist to the iconic Blue Fluted pattern which has been in production in Denmark since 1775. Karen Kjældgård-Larsen beautifully modified & enlarged elements of the original pattern and gave it a modern look. Since its introduction, Blue Fluted MEGA has become a major success with its fresh, updated look while still honoring the Blue Fluted 18th century.
For those of you who know my style well — marrying old style with new, and doing it well, always impresses me.
Produced in the same shapes and sizes as the original and using the same techniques, Blue Fluted Mega can be mixed in to supplement the original service. By mixing and matching the patterns and eras you get a personal, unique and historical collection that will be appreciated for generations to come.
Now, to the news.
It is my great honor to announce that as of today Splendid Avenue is carrying many of Royal Copenhagen’s pieces. We offer their porcelain goods that have been in production since 1775, as well as many from Karen Kjældgård-Larsen’s “new-classic” MEGA Flute series (comes in both blue and black).
You will find them under our store category Fine Dining.
More products will be added, including my own wedding china – Royal Copenhagen Princess (here below).
Do I even have to tell you how excited I am to be working with such an iconic and beautiful brand?
A brand I am already so crazy passionate about. And Scandinavian too! I am very proud of that too.
Thank you for stopping by. Hugs to you all.
