The dinner service was manufactured by the Danish Royal Copenhagen company, as part of their Flora Danica range of porcelain tableware. The first Flora Danica service was commissioned as a gift to the Empress Catherine II of Russia in the 18th Century. The name Flora Danica is taken from an illustrated botanical dictionary which was commissioned in 1761 by King Frederik V of Denmark. Flora Danica dinner services are therefore generally decorated with freehand paintings of animals and plants.
The set comprises 41 pieces, each of which is decorated with botanical illustrations and gilt rims. All pieces are marked to the underside with factory marks and shape numbers.
