Then there are brands who in their entirety are considered “luxury brands”, among them Royal Copenhagen China based in Denmark. Royal Copenhagen has a well deserved reputation as one of the world’s most prestigious china brands. After all, it does manufacture the world’s most expensive china pattern, Royal Copenhagen Flora Danica.
Although Flora Danica may be it’s greatest money-maker, Royal Copenhagen’s most popular patterns are the Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted family of patterns.
There are three patterns made with the Blue Fluted motif: Plain, Half Lace and Full Lace. As their names may indicate, the difference between the patterns is whether or not they have “lace” on the border of their pattern. It’s important to be able to distinguish between these patterns both for aesthetic and price reasons (the more lace, the higher the price).
Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted Plain features no lace border
Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted Half Lace features dots on the border, considered “Half Lace”.
Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted Full Lace features a full, extended lace border.
