Object Description

This exquisitely detailed antique porcelain dinner service comprises 26 pieces, all of which feature a different fish and beaded gilt rims. The set is made up of 24 plates, one large, oval serving dish and one sauceboat. Each piece is marked and titled to the underside with factory marks and individual numerals and letters.
The Flora Danica style dates back to a botanical dictionary commissioned in 1761 by the Danish King Frederik V. The dictionary consisted of thousands of accurate representations of wild Danish flowers, and took over 120 years to complete. The first banquet service made in this style was a gift to Empress Catherine II of Russia and comprised a mighty 1802 pieces.
