Set the Table with Dansk China Dinnerware
Dansk Designs, a distributor of tableware, cookware, and other home goods based on Danish design, got its start in Mount Kisco, New York, in 1974. It later became a subsidiary of Lennox and was labeled as the Dansk brand. The company is known for its casual dinnerware and its bone china.
What style is Dansk known for?
For over 50 years, Dansk has produced china and cooking ware with a Scandinavian flair. In addition to its contemporary appeal, the products have been shown in museums around the world. The company makes a full line of dishes and accessories that complement each other, but the dinnerware also fits well with contemporary lifestyles and decorating trends. Dansk sells these lines:
- Dinnerware and cutlery
- Glasses, mugs, and barware
- Cheeseboards, chips and dips, ice buckets, and wine coolers
- Bar accessories, coasters, and serving pieces
What are some of the Dansk patterns?
Because the dishes keep their timeless appeal but also mix well with contemporary trends, many Dansk dinnerware sets are classics. Both current and discontinued ones can be found on eBay. Among them are:
- Bistro Christianshavn: classic white porcelain with a navy band
- Lindholm: a white porcelain with berries and blue stems in a circle
- Bayberry Blue: a white porcelain with blue leaves and berries on the rim
- Mesa Sky Blue: a medium blue porcelain with decorative brown band
- Arabesque: white porcelain with an overall geometric design
What are some of Dansks unique porcelain serving dishes?
Although Dansk fine china includes traditional place settings with a dinner plate, cup, saucer, salad plate, and bread and butter plate, the brand often includes whimsical pieces like:
- Arabesque duck-shaped covered casserole
- Bistro pasta bowl
- Set of Moby party plates
- Arabesque individual casserole/bowls
- Melamine dishes with geometric shapes
Can you find fine china in discontinued patterns?
Some of the bone china patterns are exclusive to particular retailers, and others have been discontinued. Because of this, the dishes are favorites of collectors who shop at eBay or others who want to add pieces to their collections. Sometimes you can find new pieces, but more often you?ll be looking at pre-owned dinnerware with the least amount of use.
Dansk bone china mixes well with trendy table settings, classic bone china, or coordinating dinnerware and linens. You can find everything from vintage midcentury bowls to classic blue plates that complement the Danskdishes you already own on eBay.
