Imperial Porcelain Manufactory, St. Petersburg, period of Nicholas I (1825-1855)

The Mikhailovsky Palace in St. Petersburg was originally planned as the residence of Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich, the youngest son of Emperor Paul I. When Emperor Alexander I acceded to the throne, the project was entrusted to the architect Carlo Rossi. Upon its completion in 1825, the neoclassical style palace was gifted to Grand Duke Michael and his wife, Grand Duchess Elena Pavlovna, by the Emperor. The palace was home to the grand ducal family and hosted salons for luminaries of St. Petersburg society and culture.
The present plate is a supplement to the original service produced during the reign of Alexander I, circa 1819-1822.
