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.
This makes it possible to tell the age of each piece of porcelain by Royal Copenhagen.
The Royal Copenhagen trademarks shown below were used on porcelain and fine china with blue under glazed decorations. Royal Copenhagen Christmas plates, figurines and some porcelain sets.
The Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory was established May 1, 1775.
From the beginning, each porcelain item was marked with three waves symbolising Denmarks three straits: the Sound and the Great and Little Belts.
The three waves are still part of the design just not shown on the picture for this purpose.
