Copenhagen – Royal Porcelain Factory

Royal Copenhagen, officially the Royal Porcelain Factory (Den Kongelige Porcelænsfabrik), is a Danish manufacturer of porcelain products founded in Copenhagen in 1775 under the protection of Danish Dowager Queen Juliane Marie. It is recognized by its factory mark, the three wavy lines above each other, symbolising Denmark’s three straits: Storebælt (The Great Belt Bridge), Lillebælt (Little Belt) and Øresund (The Sound). Royal Copenhagen still produces pieces today however it is owned by Fiskars of Finland and produced in Thailand.
