Royal Copenhagen Consignment
Although more than 225 years have passed since the original Royal Copenhagen Flora Danica copper-plate designs were painted on porcelain for the Danish royal family, the beloved floral patterns remain highly collectible and relevant today. The first Flora Danica dinner service by Royal Copenhagen was commissioned by Denmark’s king as a gift to Russia’s Catherine the Great in 1790. Just as nobility coveted fine Royal Copenhagen china centuries ago, these rare pieces of European porcelain continue to command exceptional prices at Sotheby’s auctions.
Luxurious Flora Danica porcelain plates, as well as Royal Copenhagen fruit, fish, and game services, are always in demand for their exceptional artistry and attention to detail. Sotheby's can help you sell your Royal Copenhagen dish, plate, cup, teacup, saucer, bowl, platter, tureen, tray, monteith, wine cooler, basket or other porcelain piece in our New York, London, and online sales.
