Replacements Expands Flora Danica Collection

Flora DanicaFlora Danica

GREENSBORO, N.C.-Replacements, Ltd. is again expanding its collection of Royal Copenhagen's prestigious Flora Danica pattern through an acquisition from a private collector in Pennsylvania. The company maintains one of the largest offerings of Flora Danica available for purchase in the world.

Flora Danica is considered one of the most luxurious porcelain patterns ever produced, according to Replacements, and is one of the oldest patterns still in production. The Danish monarchy commissioned Royal Copenhagen to begin this pattern in 1790 as a gift for Catherine the Great of Russia, who died before artisans completed the original service. The pattern motifs and name are based on the historic

botanical encyclopedia, "Flora Danica" which means "flowers of Denmark," and features thousands of flora native to the Danish country.

This latest acquisition includes more than 260 pieces and follows Replacements' addition last year from private collector Richard Baron Cohen's Twinight Collection.
