Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grondahl are internationally recognized for their craftsmanship, and unique artistic style. These hand-painted and glazed collectable plates, dinnerware, and stemware are a trademark of the Danish expert technique. The tradition of Royal Copenhagen & Bing & Grondahl’s craftsmanship traces back to the early 1770’s. Queen Dowager Juliane Marie and her son became partners of “Royal Danish Porcelain Manufactory”. For nearly a century it was run by the Royal family, but in 1868 it was passed into private hands. Soon Arnold Krog, an ambitious young painter/architect managing the Manufactory, began to experiment with underglaze painting, a technique which allowed for beautiful paintings which soon made the Danish plates and collectables world famous. The color blue was used on the plates, as it was the only color that could withstand the extreme temperatures required to make this type of porcelain. The blue and white plates are distinct symbols of the Danish craftsmanship.

Bing & Grøndahl was a Danish porcelain manufacturer founded in 1853 by the sculptor Frederik Vilhelm Grøndahl and merchant brothers Meyer Hermann Bing and Jacob Herman Bing. The trademark backstamp for Bing & Grøndahl (B&G) porcelains is the three towers derived from the Coat of Arms of Copenhagen. The company's Seagull dinnerware series became known as the "National Service of Denmark" in the 1950s when it was found in one tenth of all Danish households. In 1987 the company merged with its primary competitor, the Royal Porcelain Factory under the name Royal Copenhagen.
Bing & Grøndahl was founded on April 15 1853 by Grøndahl, who was a figurine maker for the Royal Danish Porcelain Factory, and the Bing brothers, who were art and book dealers. The factory was located on the corner of Vesterbrogade and Rahbek Allé in the Vesterbro area, at that time outside the city of Copenhagen, Denmark. Grøndahl initially began the company to produce bisque figurines modeled on the neoclassical sculptures of Thorvaldsen. The company extended production to include high style dinnerware and coffee sets.
The company's signature design, Seagull, was created in 1892 by designer Fanny Garde (1855-1925). The modest, classic design features flying seagulls against pale blue backgrounds, sea horse handles and shaded patterns of scales around the edges. Due to its popularity from the 1950s to the 1980s, the Seagull design was considered the "National Service of Denmark". During that period one out of every ten Danish households owned some of the dinnerware service.
In 1895, Bing & Grøndahl created the first in their series of Christmas plates. Designed with a traditional winter scene in cobalt blue and white, the plates have been released annually for more than 100 years. Noted as desirable by collectors, this series became responsible for a large portion of the company's production.
In 1987 the company merged with its primary competitor, the Royal Porcelain Factory under the name Royal Copenhagen.
