Looking for a formal yet patriotic #NationalCoffeeDay? Try this Founding Fathers-themed coffee service:
In honor of National Coffee Day, here’s a coffee service given to President Ford by Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik of Denmark on May 10, 1976.
This Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Colonial Coffee-service includes a coffee pot with lid, a creamer, a sugar bowl with lid, four coffee cups, four coffee saucers, and a serving tray. Each item features the silhouette of an American Patriot such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. Additionally, each piece has a tortoise shell glaze and a gold band around the bottom, with a gold grapevine inlay around the top.
With the exception of the added silhouettes, this coffee set is an exact replica of one designed and produced by the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory in 1782. The Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory designed the Colonial Coffee-service in commemoration of the American Bicentennial and the factory’s bicentennial.

Inspiring … and so true!
