ROYAL COPENHAGEN :: 1958 - 3" Cigarette Holder Blue Fluted FULL Lace - NR!

NO RESERVE! I'm offering an simply exquisite piece of vintage Danish porcelain made by Royal Copenhagen . This is known as a "cigarette" holder and is created in the Blue Fluted FULL Lace pattern . EXCELLENT condition, no chips, cracks, breaks, restoration or crazing that I can assess. Measures approximately 3" height and 3" round. From my personal collection of Scandinavian pottery and porcelain. This pattern, of all of the fluted body designs, is noted for the highest quality of decorative execution. From the bright white ground to the intricate handpainted traditional Danish Blue decoration. Full, round, openwork body with scalloped edges, in an open basketweave upper design. This item dates to 1958 (the "dash" mark appears under the "M" of Denmark). Hallmarked appropriately on the underside of the base as follows: In green, Royal Copenhagen, Crown Mark, Denmark (circular logo) with three waves in blue, 1/1015 in green, decorator's mark XG in blue. A nice opportunity to acquire this piece as it can stand alone, part of a collection of blue & white porcelain as in Blue Willow, Blue Onion or Delft, or to add to someone who is building a complete dinner service. Fully high-glazed on all sides. Interior clean with decoration being carried into the inside areas. Please look at photos. Any pink reflections seen are from my camera

BRIEF HISTORY: Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted Full Lace is considered the epitome of Danish porcelain. Blue Fluted Full Lace displays the utmost variation in ornamentation and craftsmanship. The "lace-like" weave of the borders is so intricate that only a very highly-skilled craftsman can accomplish them in all their complexity. Original design dates back to 1775. The Blue Fluted Pattern is part of Denmark's cultural heritage. (Information sourced from )
