A modern classic from Royal Copenhagen
Blue Line is a popular porcelain coffee- and dinnerware produced by Royal Copenhagen, which was introduced in 1965. The service is characterized by the fine blue line on otherwise white porcelain. - The set is truly a timeless design, which is why Blue Line can still be found in modern homes today.
The simple, elegant, and classic design is inspired by the signature blue color that Royal Copenhagen is known for. Each piece of the set is hand-made, and the cobalt blue edge is hand-painted to ensure that the color is even and consistent.

In 1965, the set received the Danish Honour Prize for industrial design, the ID-prize.
