Royal Copenhagen - Table lamp - Nr. 203-4622
Denmark - 1970-1980 - Porcelain

This gorgeous porcelain lamp base with a metal holder for a lamp shade was made in the 1970s–1980s by Royal Copenhagen Denmark. Decorated with a sailing boat sailing past a stunning castle in strong winds.
This Royal Copenhagen porcelain lamp base is sold without the lamp shade.

The royal crown:

The crown symbolises the beginning of Royal Copenhagen in the hands of the entrepreneurial monarchy.
The logo is the royal crown with three blue waves underneath symbolising the Sound, the Great Belt and the Little Belt.
The crown was initially painted by hand, but in the 1870s the company began to stamp the mark under the glaze. The crown is decorated with the 'Dagmar Cross', a crucifix with jewels from the Middle Ages that was discovered in 1690.
The crown has changed over the years, but it is possible to identify the year or decade in which each piece of porcelain was made.

The craftsmanship:
It takes four years to learn the craft of painting on porcelain from Royal Copenhagen. And while it can be difficult for a layman to distinguish one Blue Fluted Plain design from another, experienced painters always know their own work because they know their own personal handwriting.
Each painter had (and still has) his own stamp, marked on the underside of each piece of porcelain. Some
of the painters are known, but some others are a mystery.
