Royal Copenhagen opened a store in Paris, in 1890, and 7 years later in the fashionable “Old Bond Street” in London.
At the turn of the century, Royal Copenhagen was one of most innovative leaders in the field of porcelain, and their products were sold worldwide.
Unfortunately, the factory had financial problems, and the King had to step in and take over in 1779.

Royal Copenhagen (at that time Danish Porcelain Factory) was founded in 1775 by chemist, Frantz Heinrich Müller, under the protection of Queen Juliane Marie (and her son, King Christian VII).
Frantz Heinrich Müller was given a 50-year monopoly to create porcelain, and the first pieces were dining services for the royal family.
Architect Arnold Krog was hired as creative director of the porcelain factory in 1884, and he catapulted the factory onto the international market.
