Learn More About Royal Copenhagen's Blue Fluted Pattern*

Royal Copenhagen’s first ever dinner service, Blue Fluted Plain, was created in 1775 and still today, the service is known and loved around the world. As the first pattern from Royal Copenhagen, Blue Fluted Plain was given the moniker ‘Pattern No.1’, and since 1775, the number ‘1’ has been marked on the underside of every piece of Blue Fluted Plain porcelain.

In the late 14th century, Denmark and other European nations became infatuated with the riches and crafts of the Far East - especially China. As the birthplace of porcelain, China inspired the European potters with a style of porcelain that represented wealth and refined taste, and which had become a valuable export. As the sea route to China opened, ships brought home increasing quantities of porcelain wares decorated in unimaginable blue hues on a body of gleaming white. The early blue and white patterns of Royal Copenhagen found their origin in these treasures from the East.

Still today, Blue Fluted Plain is produced just as it was in 1775, and the tradition and craftsmanship behind the handpainted pattern has been passed down through generation of painters. Blue Fluted Plain has formed the foundation of a wide range of Royal Copenhagen porcelain collections, creating a common thread through the proud history of Royal Copenhagen. Through more than two centuries, the timeless elegance, clear blue pattern and classic fluting of Blue Fluted Plain have become a part of the Danish cultural legacy and the pattern has become a true, timeless classic.
