Royal Copenhagen

Royal Copenhagen is THE brand of Danish china. The flagship store of the brand lies in the city center, on Amagertorv.

The facade is obviously the oldest one of the square, from 1616 as written on the building itself.
The emblem of the brand is a royal crown placed on three waves representing the three inlets once controlled by the Danish kingdom.

The downspout is rather special ...

Well, enough time spent at the front, let's now enter the store. Here you can find ... porcelain (mostly). The collections on the first floor are the most recent: Mega and the new one Elements. I think it's a successful adaptation of the traditional motif of the mark, and the transition to color (blue instead of basic) rejuvenates the drawing. But still I do not see myself using it for dinner...

Let's be honest, nothing in there is cheap. Maybe because everything is painted by hand (with the artist's signature on the back of the item please) in Denmark that the price is so high... In the basement, the second choice china is a -little bit- more affordable.
To prepare your visit:
The tour continues ...
