About The Artist:

The Flora Danica pattern was designed in the 18th century by Johann Christoph Bayer for Royal Copenhagen after the botanical illustrations he painted for the Danish botanical work the Flora Danica. Begun in 1761, the Flora Danica consists of 3,240 engravings in folio of all the wild plants that grew in the kingdom of Denmark. It is generally believed that the Flora Danica dinner set was intended as a present from the Danish king to the Russian Tsarina Catharine II. The Flora Danica set became Bayer's life work.
