As one of the largest diplomatic services of the 18th century, the St. Andrews service was a product of the high regard in which Meissen porcelain was held in the Russian court. In the summer of 1745, the service was presented to the Russian court by Augustus III to the Czarina Elizabeth on the occasion of the wedding of her nephew, Karl Peter Ulrich von Holstein-Gottorf's to Sophie Auguste Friederike of Anhalt-zerbst (later Czarina Catherine the Great).
