Empress Elisabeth of Austria, a gift from Emperor Francis Joseph I;

The present set was commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph I for Empress consort Elisabeth, no doubt intended as a reminder of her youth in Bavaria. The service includes contemporary views of Royal Bavarian residences, namely the New Palace at Schleissheim, the Imperial Castle, Nuremberg, the garden façade of the new Royal Palace at Herrechiemsee, Garatshausen Castle, and views of the Hintersee near Berchtesgaden, Lindau Harbour, Isle of Frauenchiemsee, Lake Chiemsee, Traunstein, Obersee, Alpsee in Hohenschwangau, Lindau on Lake Constance and Berchtesgaden before the Watzmann.  The service was kept at the summer residence of Villa Ischl in Upper Austria.
