The Times, in its May 26, 1845 article discusses the service: 'A dessert service, of the finest porcelain, has just been completed by command of Her Majesty by the Messrs. Daniell, of Wigmore-street and New Bond-street, to be presented to the Emperor of Russia. The service is for 60 persons; it is highly credible to the manufactories of this country, and displays, both in the shape of the various pieces of which it consists, the brilliancy of the colours, and the splendour of the gilding, a great advance both in the art of design and the mechanical processes or preparing the clay and producing the enamel of the surface.'
A dessert plate from this service was exhibited at the Great Exhibition of 1851.
