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

gilding, 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.
