On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 553

One of the most celebrated services of the late eighteenth century was created for Marie-Antoinette's pleasure dairy at the château of Rambouillet. The design of the service was in the most up to date neoclassical taste, and the somewhat austere painted decoration was inspired by Greek vases. While a total of sixty-five pieces were delivered in two shipments to Rambouillet, only fifteen pieces are known today.
