Aluminia was a Danish factory of faience or earthenware pottery, established in Copenhagen in 1863. In 1882 the owners of Aluminia purchased the Royal Copenhagen porcelain factory. The factories were operated independently until 1969 when the use of the Aluminia name was discontinued. Faience items have continued to be produced under the name “Royal Copenhagen Denmark Fajance”.
