A touch of soft vibrancy and contemporary elegance
Royal Copenhagen proudly introduce a new color to the iconic Half Lace decoration; a soft, yet vibrant coral, inspired by our historical colour archive. A colour that feels modern, but still has a sense of timelessness.
In the late 1800’s after Arnold Krog had been appointed Artistic Director, a few special productions with Pattern No. 1 in a variety of overglaze colours were made to be sold at Tiffany’s in New York. The colours were a light blue, emerald green and a bright raspberry pink - this pink colour became the inspiration for the Coral Collections.
Holding the Coral Fluted Half Lace Cup and Saucer is like holding a piece of porcelain history. The traditionally shaped teacup is beautifully decorated in the soft coral hue, giving it a contemporary look and feel. The half lace shape created in 1888 is enhanced by the hand-painted decorations.SHOP NOW

Explore in-glaze handpaintingThe majority of Royal Copenhagen's porcelain is painted in the iconic cobalt blue, where the various decorations are handpainted using the underglaze technique. This means that the painter paints on the biquit porcelain and after that the colour is locked with the glazing and firing. The Coral collections are not handpainted with the underglaze technique but with the lesser know craft; in-glaze.
The porcelain is given shape and fired for the first time leaving it as “biscuit” porcelain. The porcelain is then glazed as you can see in the image and fired for the second time at 1375°C which causes the porcelain to shrink up to 14%. The porcelain is now technically a finished undecorated product, and it is time to apply the decorations.
The painters apply the decorations starting with the thinnest lines for which they use a tool that is reminiscent of a fountain pen, and then with immaculate precision they handpaint the outline of each palmette and floral. Once the base of the pattern is done, they fill out the florals and half lace rim with a small brush.
