Bing & Grondahl Empire dinnerware
In 1904 Harriet Bing, who was married to the Bing & Grondahl Director, painted the B&G Empire tableware.
Bing & Grondahl launched dinnerware with scale in connection with an exhibition in 1888. The Empire tableware - and the Seagull dinnerware - are some of the most famous tableware which are painted on this mould. Empire dinnerware is intended as a tribute to Napoleon's imperial coronation, which took place 100 years earlier. The anniversary led several places in Europe for a revival of the Empire style with its symmetrical cobalt blue flowers. Also the Bing & Grondahl porcelain Empire send greetings to this.
Empire from Bing & Grondal consist of so many parts, so you can set your table with both dinnerware and coffee service. For dinner there are, among other things, large and small turrine (which are now often used for flower decorations), sauce bowls, oval dishes in many sizes for roast beef, salmon, cheese dishes, etc., as well as salad bowls and potato dishes.
The coffee table you can set with Empire cups in different sizes - mocha cups, coffee cups and tea cups, cake plates, coffee pot and tea pot, sugar bowls and cream jugs in two sizes, cake dish, candy bowl, candlesticks and vases.
