Lot Essay

The Kremlin Service was commissioned by Emperor Nicholas I in 1836 from the Imperial Porcelain Factory, and the design entrusted to the painter and archeologist, F. G. Solntsev (1801-1892). The motifs were inspired by seventeenth century Russian metalwork; for example the design for the dessert plates came from a jewelled, gold and enamelled plate made in 1667 for Natalia Kirilovna, née Naryshkina, wife of the second Romanov Tsar, Alexei Mikhailovich.
