This unique porcelain tea service for six people “Rococo” is made at the Imperial porcelain factory on the shape “Alexand III”. Tea set “Rococo” was created in 2013 using the Hermitage Museum exhibit “Banquet” that was first made in 1866 under the project of an outstanding French artist Vivan Bosse for the Anichkov Palace – official residence of the heir – to the wedding of the grand duke, the heir, Aleksandr Aleksandrovich and the Danish Princess Dagmara – the future empress Maria Fedorvna. That was a rare union of two loving hearts which first started forcedly but later on turned to a tender love story. “I think about Dagmar more and pray to God every day that he will arrange this deal, which will be happiness for my whole life. I feel the need to have a wife more and more, to love her and be loved.” – they were the words written by Alexander right after he first met his future spouse. The wedding was magnificent with all the attributes of marriage ceremonies held in the Romanovs’ house: gilded carriages, artillery salutes, military convoys, the best musicians, thousands of guests and crowned relatives from all over Europe at a luxurious festive table with the best dishes served in beautiful dinner services. The set “Banquet” featured the monogram “AA” below the crown. Tea set “Rococo” created at the Imperial Porcelain Factory is luxuriously decorated with gold 52%. The exquisite floral pattern of the trellis net adorns all the items of this unique set.
