Footnotes

  • The service started being produced in 1805 and continued being made until 1814, when the French monarchy was restored. Napoleon gave pieces from the service as gifts to King Friedrich August I of Saxony in 1809 and Prince Schwarzenberg, the Austrian ambassador, in 1812. The decoration included a variety of subjects, such as flower still lifes, landscapes, cameos and historical and genre scenes.
