There are times when a table setting calls for dinnerware that is white and unremarkable, usually when the goal is to highlight other elements of the table setting. Plain white dinnerware can also be used as a contrast to the other colors that are on display on the table, whilst still retaining a touch of classic elegance that diners will appreciate. Modern dinnerware is starting to skew away from the traditional white of old by incorporating colors and designs that are sure to catch the eye. A perfect example of this can be found in the Royal Copenhagen Blue Mega dinnerware collection.
It may surprise some people to hear modern dinnerware mentioned in the same breath as Royal Copenhagen, since the company has close to 250 years of delivering fine china that is perfectly suited to the most lavish of table settings. You can rest assured that nothing has really changed in the way that Royal Copenhagen goes about producing their dinnerware collections. Artistic brilliance and craftsmanship are still very much at the heart of what the company does, and it’s all very evident when you get a look at their blue dinnerware.
The attention to detail is absolutely evident in every single piece, and is something that can really only be achieved by creating each piece of china by hand. In the days were dinnerware is mass produced and sold at rock bottom prices, Royal Copenhagen sticks by the traditions that made their pieces so sought after in the first place. You will go through countless discount dinnerware sets far quicker than you will a single piece from Royal Copenhagen porcelain. These are items that are not just designed to look good, as they are also created to stand the test of time, which is the true measure of a quality product.
Each individual piece is molded, casted, and biscuit fired before the final steps of painting and glazing are completed. It’s the paintwork that sets the Royal Copenhagen Blue Mega dinnerware set apart from anything else you are likely to ever see on the dinner table. The delicate blue flowers and leaves that adorn the china could stand alone as beautiful pieces of art, but their addition to the glorious white background creates a look that you will almost not want to spoil by covering it with food.
We say almost, because this is dinnerware that is more than just decorative. The process of designing and creating such beautiful work was not done so that you could just place the pieces in a china cabinet like a museum piece. This is dinnerware that is to be enjoyed in a number of different ways, and that begins with using it for the purpose in which it was intended.
