Simply Scandinavia produces the most genuine reproductions of Chinese porcelain, planters, vases, bowls and plates of traditional design. East Indian is the name of the porcelain patterns which were exported to Europe originating in the traditional patterns that the Chinese themselves appreciated. Export porcelain on the other hand is considered to be the designs and patterns that the European trade companies ordered in China based on Western drawings, meticulously copied by Chinese craftsmen. Each family of means ordered dinner services with their own family crest.

The main event during the coronation festivities was a so-called Carousel, a performed and predetermined battle between different peoples. The court painter Ehrenstral was tasked with creating the magnificent costumes and decor, and later to perpetuate the events in a richly illustrated book. The King won the battle, naturally!
