porcelain (material), 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.
