Ipsens was a ceramics manufacturer in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The company was founded by Peter Ipsen in 1843 and was continued by his widow Louise Ipsen and son Berthel Ipsen after his death in 1860.
It achieved international success with its replica of antique Greek and Roman ceramics, winning awards at international expositions and opening its own shops in Paris and London.
After the turn of the century, it collaborated with artists such as Thorvald Bindesbøll and Axel Salto. It closed in 1955.
