The Royal Copenhagen manufactory operations began in a converted post office in 1775.
It was founded by a chemist, Frantz Heinrich Müller, who was given a 50-year monopoly to create porcelain.
The first pieces manufactured were dining services for the royal family.
When, in 1779, King Christian VII assumed financial responsibility, the manufactory was styled the Royal Porcelain Factory.
Royal Copenhagen was a part of a group of Scandinavian companies, Royal Scandinavia, together with Georg Jensen, and was owned by the Danish private equity fund, Axcel.
