The pattern is Danild 66, and sometimes referred to as Draber (in English literally Drops Of) and it was produced in the late 1950's...it was part of a very popular range called Danild, Dan-ild, or Dan-fire....each numbered Danild <xy>

Lyngby Porcelain opened in 1936 in Lyngby, a picturesque town just north of Copenhagen. Neils Holst and Christian Knudsen were its original founders, and it was a major supplier of dinnerware to the Danish market from the 1950s until its closure in 1969, after which it was soon demolished.
At its peak it had over 500 workers -which gives us an idea of the volume of work that they must have produced. Axel Bruel worked there as a designer at its peak as well.

There were quite a large number of different backstamps used during the years, and I was a bit confused with the dinner set as it had a completely different stamp - but it clicked eventually - the stamp on part of the dinnerware I purchased is for when Lyngby was called Niels Holst & Son A/S.
So these are the 2 differing stamps on the pieces I purchased...all of the others I have seen have the word Lyngby in them which makes identification a bit easier at least.
