Royal Copenhagen Flora Danica Signatures
We are working on finding out who is behind the signatures used on Royal Copenhagen Flora Danica. We are investigating both the painters and also the gilders, as both groups are some of the most skilled workers at Royal Copenhagen (Den Kongelige Porcel�nsfabrik).
If you, yourself have been or are a Flora Danica painter or gilder, we would like to hear from you. Then we will add you, to our list. If you have had a Flora Danica painter in your family and know the signature and/or have a story, then please contact us as well.
We, of course, know it will be difficult to find all the names behind the signatures. So on many signatures we will have to live with just figuring out the dateline they used. If you own some Flora Danica pieces, we would like to receive pictures of the marks on the back. Then we will add the information to this site.
For the user of these signatures: the signatures are used on all over-glaze items. If you have Royal Copenhagen patterns like Henriette, Saxon Flower and others, then these signatures will work for you too.
