The Louis XV Service was the first large large service produced by the factory and marked the introduction of their new ground color, 'bleu Helot' or 'bleu ancien', developed by chemist Jean Hellot in 1753 in imitaiton of the turquoise glazes found on late 17th-Century Chinese porcelain, and later called 'bleu céleste'. For this special commission the factory also created a number of new shapes, designed primarily by Jean-Claude Duplessis.  It was delivered to the King at Versailles in three stages; the first was on December 24, 1753, supplemented by two further deliveries on December 31, 1754 and December 31, 1755.  In July 1757, however, the King relinqished a sizeable portion of the service, selling it through the auspices of the marchand-mercier Lazare Duvaux to Étienne-François de Choiseul, the Comte de Stainville (1719-85).

The history and disposition of the service is extensively discussed by David Peters, Sevres Plates and Services of the 18th century, pp. 283-90, where the author also lists known collections that include pieces from the service and reference works that describe and illustrate examples, as well as listing the component pieces of the original 3-part commission, all of which included plateaux pour pots à jus. A plateau de pot à oille from the service was sold at Sotheby's, London, on July 14, 1998, lot 77.
