Copenhagen's museum of antique porcelain and silver.
The front of the shop houses a large collection of antique silver by Jensen and porcelain by Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grondahl. Some of the finest pieces for sale date back to the late 18th century Shop manager and museum curator Michael von Essen has a wealth of resources and can be very helpful in tracking the history of Jensen, Royal Copenhagen, or Bing & Grondahl pieces. We sent him a photocopy of a 1920s pin, and he was able to tell us its original style number and designer. You can order by mail ftom the shop, at Bredgade 11, 1260 Copenhagen K, Denmark. (There is no catalog.)
The map at left shows the easy two-block detour off Stroget, the main shopping street. Hours are 10 to 5 weekdays, 10 to 2 Saturdays.
