This service “Golden” reflects the heyday of the Imperial Porcelain Factory in the first third of the XIX century when the factory produced large ceremonial sets for the palaces of the house of Romanov. The painting uses classic blue and green tones, with an exquisite floral and geometric ornament applied to them that swirl around the delicate porcelain as it attracts the eye with its pure and luxurious design. The porcelain service is richly decorated with natural gold with filigree engraving. The abundance of gold in the painting gave the service, originally called “Armorial”, the second name – “Gold”. This wonderful tea set consists of 20 items: six cups with saucers and cake plates, and a luxury teapot and sugar bowl. Porcelain Service “Golden” with gold etching and overglaze painting will be a valuable and prestigious gift.
