Tea service and stand, Johannes Engelbrecht, c. 1725 - c. 1730

silver (metal), h 37.5cm × w 56.0cm × d 40.0cm. More details

This early Meissen porcelain tea service is richly painted with chinoiserie. A special stand was made for it in an even costlier material, silver gilt. The ensemble is a splendid decoration for the table, in which the individual pieces all contribute to the grand total impression. The service was probably made for Tsarina Elizabeth of Russia.

On display in room 1.4
