Danish Royal Porcelain 1775-2000 - 225 Years of Design

Blue Fluted and Blue Flower 1780-1800

Blue-decorated porcelain accounted for most of the manufactory's production - although if was only within reach for the prosperous members of society. 

In the 18th and 19th century, there were set rules for the strictly symmetrical positioning of the individual items of the service around the center of the table.  Food was served in up to three 'sets'.  The many dishes had their permanent position on the table, with guests helping themselves from the closest dishes.  The final 'set' included desserts.

 


In the 19th century, the style changed now the table was almost bare.  The dishes were borne round the table, with everyone eating the same dish.
