The so-called Cobalt Service is connected to a luxurious cobalt blue ground porcelain service with gilt decoration en caillouté that Joseph II had ordered from the Vienna Porcelain Manufactory as a gift to Grand Duke Paul Petrovich, then the heir to the throne and travelling with his wife throughout Europe. The design was inspired by an earlier gift of a Sèvres table service given to Danish King Christian VII by Louis XV in 1768. During the reign of Nicholas I, this service, used at Gatchina Palace, once again came into favour and numerous additions were made to it beginning in 1840. The additions continued throughout the remainder of his reign and that of his successor, Alexander II (r. 1855-1881). On this service, see Tsvet nebesnyi, sinii tsvet, St. Petersburg, 2007, no. 14, p. 40.
