ROYAL COPENHAGEN DENMARK
This world famous company first started trading in the 1770S and the factory had started life out as a post office before being converted by the first owner frantz heinrich muller, whom was not an artisan but a chemist instead.
It was the love of chinese ceramics mainly the blue and white that ended up with r\c serving the danish royal family.
With custom dinner services and other such ceramics with the two main colours, the company became very popular all over the world and had a great foothold on many aspects of the ceramic world for many a decade, producing some of the greatest pieces I have come across in my search for the best.
Tthe company was sold as recently as 2012, the new company still makes items but is now based like many others in Thailand.
