Blue Fluted Plain

Blue Fluted Plain came to life in 1775 as the first ever pattern from Royal Copenhagen. Still today, the classic blue floral pattern is produced just as it was centuries ago, each piece of porcelain treated as a piece of art, carefully painted by hand.

Created in 1775. Revised by Artistic Director, Arnold Krog, in 1885.

Blue Fluted Plain - passion, legacy and quality in handpainted blue.

 
Royal Copenhagen’s first ever dinner service, Blue Fluted Plain, was created in 1775 and still today, the service is known and loved around the world. As the first pattern from Royal Copenhagen, Blue Fluted Plain was given the moniker ‘Pattern No.1’, and since 1775, the number ‘1’ has been marked on the underside of every piece of Blue Fluted Plain porcelain. Blue Fluted Plain is a timeless porcelain service made to be used every day, and still today, after almost 245 years, a Blue Fluted Plain bowl, dish, plate or cup is a beautiful addition to any porcelain collection.

Treasures from the East

In the late 14th century, Denmark and other European nations became infatuated with the riches and crafts of the East. Especially China, the birthplace of porcelain, inspired with its porcelain, which represented wealth and refined taste, and which had become a valuable export. As the sea route to China opened, ships brought home increasing quantities of porcelain wares decorated in unimaginable blue hues on a body of gleaming white. The early blue and white patterns of Royal Copenhagen found their origin in these treasures from the East.

Evolution of a flower

Like the craft of porcelain hand-painting itself, the centered flower on the Blue Fluted Plain pattern has evolved over time. Reimagined and refined, the flower finally found its forever expression in the early 1800s.

The story in the name

Blue Fluted Plain is also known as the "mussel" painted pattern, and though many old tales explain the meaning behind the name, no one knows for sure. Some claim the name refers to the pattern’s landscape of fluted and plain sections, which resemble the shape of a mussel. Others, like former Artistic Director, Arnold Krog, claimed the name derived from the cobalt blue colour used in the hand-painted decorations, a colour also referred to as "mussel colour".

Timeless porcelain

Still today, Blue Fluted Plain is produced just as it was in 1775, and the tradition and craftsmanship behind the handpainted pattern has been passed down through generation of painters. Blue Fluted Plain has formed the foundation of a wide range of Royal Copenhagen porcelain collections, creating a common thread through the proud history of Royal Copenhagen. Through more than two centuries, the timeless elegance, clear blue pattern and classic fluting of Blue Fluted Plain have become a part of the Danish cultural legacy and the pattern has become a true, timeless classic.
