This finely decorated dessert plate, together with a further sixty-two pieces, was commissioned by Queen Victoria as a gift to the Russian Emperor Nicholas I, on the occasion of his state visit to England in 1844. The complete service was delivered to St. Petersburg in 1845. The Emperor was so impressed that he ordered one hundred twenty-four additional pieces from the Imperial Porcelain Factory.  

 

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.
