Royal Copenhagen


Discover the world of Royal Copenhagen

For more than 240 years, Royal Copenhagen has presented timeless porcelain of the highest quality. Porcelain created through a hand-crafted tradition born in an innovative vision, which began in the late 1700s, when Royal Copenhagen creatives found inspiration from Chinese culture and brought the first hand-painted Blue Fluted pattern to life under Danish skies. With its winding chrysanthemums and potentils, the blue floral pattern marked the beginning of a proud, innovative and timeless tradition of fine porcelain – and a world of creation without limits.
With untiring enthusiasm, meticulous craftsmanship and an inherent desire to honour and reimagine its legacy, Royal Copenhagen continues to tell new tales through its porcelain creations.

Modern Table Setting is a Personal Affair

Choosing an eclectic mix of colour, pattern and style is more personal and chic than a very formal and studied setting. Mix old with new, classic with modern, plain with patterned and colour with pure white. With Royal Copenhagen dinnerware, you can lay out the past, present and future in one setting. Click here for inspiration.


Our family have a growing collection of Plates, Cups and more from Royal Copenhagen. Many of the items were wedding gifts (it's tradition for a girl to get Royal Copenhagen items for birthdays, Christmas and other events) and many of the items we purchased to complete a set. We have a set of Blue Fluted Half Lace products which are framed by a delicate lace trim, which acts as a foil for the hand-painted motif and charming snail shell on each lid. A versatile classic. It takes 1,197 brush strokes – no more, no less – to paint a Blue Fluted Half Lace dinner plate. Meticulous work and gorgeous art always went hand in hand.

Royal Copenhagen offers a breakage warranty

The breakage warranty entitles you to receive a new, similar product at no cost in return for this proof of warranty attached to the original receipt and any pieces from the broken or chipped product.

The breakage warranty applies to all Royal Copenhagen porcelain ranges available at the time of purchase (with the exception of Flora Danica), and which have been purchased in stores, like Great Danes,  that are part of the breakage warranty scheme, as well as Royal Copenhagen, Amagertorv 6, Copenhagen, Denmark, Royal Copenhagen, Store Torv 14, Aarhus, Denmark and Royal Copenhagen’s online shop at www.royalcopenhagen.com.

The breakage warranty runs for 24 months from the purchase date and covers just 1 range. The warranty does not cover continued breakages or breakages caused by gross negligence. The warranty can only be used once per item, and can only be used for the number of goods purchased e.g. if 12 plates were purchased from the above ranges, 12 replacement plates may be received.

Upgrade your life with Royal Copenhagen!  We can order anything on the site - we match all  reasonable pricing - delivery usually 1-2 weeks after order.

Have a look...


DANISH DESIGN READING GLASSES

Have A Look are fun, fashionable and affordable reading glasses and reading sunglasses. We believe that your style should be sharp even if your vision isn't! Available in strengths ranging from +1 to +3, all our glasses are made to suit both men and women.

Our collection of Danish design reading glasses and reading sunglasses is inspired by the latest trends in the world of fashion and interior design. The glasses fit neatly, with a durable poly-carbonate frame, comfortable flex hinges and aspherical acrylic lenses, crating a light, slender and elegant look, even for lenses of higher strength. All metal components are of course nickel-free.

Your Have A Look reading glasses and reading sunglasses come in a wool felt case so you can take good care of them. Free wool felt case (worth£5) with each pair of glasses.


OLDER, WISER - BUT WITH WEAKER SIGHT

If you're starting to wonder who shrank the letters in your reading material, you've probably got presbyopia. This is simply a term for age-related vision and means your ability to focus at short distances is weakened over the years. But all you need to beat presbyopia is a good pair of reading glasses to get everything back into focus.

A WIDE AND VARIED SELECTION

We have exclusively designed, sensibly priced reading glasses to suit all tastes and every shape of face. Your lens strength depends on your age and vision, but what your glasses look like depends on who you are. Follow your heart and your mood when you're shopping eye-wear online. It's cheap and easy to buy reading glasses online - so have a little fun!

Eva Solo Knives


        EVA SOLO Knives - Celebrating 100 years of Great Danish Design

        Established in Copenhagen at the beginning of the 20th Century, Eva Solo has evolved into one of the finest producers of truly stunning table and kitchenware across Europe. And for Eva Solo great design is everything - although it’s not just about outward appearances. A combination of aesthetics, functionality and choice of materials make Eva Solo products stand-out on the table and prove a joy to use and own. 
      The Nordic kitchen knives have been developed and designed according to Japanese knife-making traditions. 
    The blades are made of Japanese Damascus steel (AUS 10) and comprises 67 layers. In addition, the blade edge has a Japanese angle of 13-15° on each side. In combination, these features ensure maximum sharpness without compromising on flexibility. The narrow spine makes it easy to cut through foods, although it should not be used on frozen foods or bones. The handle is shaped according to the handâs anatomy. The bolster is designed so that you can rest your thumb on it, allowing you to apply optimum pressure and for greater precision. The spine of the blade is rounded. The knives are extremely durable with a hardness of 60 HRC.
