White. The purest and lightest of colors. Vast, clean, and endlessly calm. But within it, a multitude of shades, shadows, and nuances. A pared-down palette of simplicity on which White Fluted was born more than 244 years ago as the base shape of another iconic Royal Copenhagen pattern, Blue Fluted Plain. Today, we can enjoy the beautiful flutes in their purest form on White Fluted. Clean and elegant. The art of setting a table is sometimes to keep it simple and let eye-catching pieces stand out—such as the new White Fluted long oval dish. A versatile serving item, the large dish is also a beautiful center piece on its own, and the oval shape allows the dish to blend in beautifully with both modern and classic table settings. The new oval dish is a timeless addition to any Royal Copenhagen collection or an obvious gift choice for a special occasion.

Arnold Krog
Restoring a castle, reconstructing the Blue Fluted pattern
Arnold Krog(1856-1931) was educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, and went on to specialize in restoring castles in their original historical style. In 1885 he was appointed artistic director of the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory.
His first undertaking at the factory was to reconstruct and relaunch the ancient Blue Fluted pattern. In the course of this work he created the magnificent service that has been one of Royal Copenhagen's finest for more than a hundred years.

"I was adamant in my demands..."
Even before the summer of 1885 Arnold Krog had made certain corrections to the reproduction of the pattern, which had become rather poor with the passing of the years, and he managed to revolutionize some of the designs. "And then I got to grips with it, and tried to create forms that were suitable for covering with the decoration that had been established for years. I was adamant in my demands in this respect, no matter what I was trying to design."

Developing the Blue Flower dinner service
Later on, in 1913, Arnold Krog developed the Blue Flower angular coffee service into a complete dinner service with the old Blue Flower pattern as the decoration. A Late Empire coffee service created by his predecessor, architect G.H. Hetsch, who was Artistic Head of the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory from 1828-1864.

Working on the underglaze painting technique
Arnold Krog now set to work on the underglaze painting technique coupled with inspiration from the craftsmanship of East Asia - mainly works from Japan, quite a number of which arrived in Europe during this period - which led to the development of an entirely new painting style and technique, combining Japanese imagery with European naturalism. The selection of colors was limited at first to blue cobalt. But in the course of a few years the range expanded, facilitating the depiction of the Danish landscape in soft, misty tones. Vases and dishes, soon to be followed by naturalistic figures of animals and people were presented at the major exhibitions of the day - and were awarded distinctions!

Arnold Krog's creative efforts within the underglaze technique established the international success of the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory.
