  • Description

    Traditional, unfussy, and as cool as a Scandinavian winter's day.
    Like the other Royal Copenhagen ranges of white dinnerware, the White Fluted design is a 19th century creation, successfully restored in recent decades.
    The basic design is identical to the Blue Fluted Plain, Blue Fluted Mega and Fluted Signature services and mixes well – it stands out cool and elegant on its own, too!
    In a minimalistic and contemporary style, White Fluted tells the story of royal porcelain and craftsmanship in the form of a modern classic. Its pure whiteness and simple design makes White Fluted the perfect complement to other fluted dinner sets. It is an ideal everyday dinner service in a modern home where quality is never compromised. Sheer elegance and simplicity.

    Arnold Krog

    Trained at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts - graduated in 1880.

    Artistic director of Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory, 1884-1916.

    Restoring a castle, reconstructing the Blue Fluted pattern Arnold Krog was educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, and went on to specialise in restoring castles in their original historical style. In 1885 he was appointed artistic director of the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory.

    His first undertaking at the factory was to reconstruct and relaunch the ancient Blue Fluted pattern. In the course of this work he created the magnificent service that has been one of Royal Copenhagen's finest for more than a hundred years.

    "I was adamant in my demands..."

    Even before the summer of 1885 Arnold Krog had made certain corrections to the reproduction of the pattern, which had become rather poor with the passing of the years, and he managed to revolutionise some of the designs. "And then I got to grips with it, and tried to create forms that were suitable for covering with the decoration that had been established for years. I was adamant in my demands in this respect, no matter what I was trying to design."

    Developing the Blue Flower dinner service

    Later on, in 1913, Arnold Krog developed the Blue Flower angular coffee service into a complete dinner service with the old Blue Flower pattern as the decoration. A Late Empire coffee service created by his predecessor, architect G.H. Hetsch, who was Artistic Head of the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory from 1828-1864.

    Working on the underglaze painting technique

    Arnold Krog now set to work on the underglaze painting technique coupled with inspiration from the craftsmanship of East Asia - mainly works from Japan, quite a number of which arrived in Europe during this period - which led to the development of an entirely new painting style and technique, combining Japanese imagery with European naturalism. The selection of colours was limited at first to blue cobalt. But in the course of a few years the range expanded, facilitating the depiction of the Danish landscape in soft, misty tones. Vases and dishes, soon to be followed by naturalistic figures of animals and people were presented at the major exhibitions of the day - and were awarded distinctions!

    Arnold Krog's creative efforts within the underglaze technique established the international success of the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory.
