Tableware at Balls/Court Functions
« on: April 03, 2013, 11:32:41 AM »
Hi everyone,

  I'm sorry if a thread similar to this one already exists, but I didn't see any....I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of tableware was used at balls/court functions during the reign of Nicholas II. Did they use the services produced by the Imperial Porcelain Factory or was there a more generic form? What about silver? Was there a specific design/type used at these events? I'm particularly interested in what would have been used at the Tercentenary events, but if anyone has any information about these things in general I would be most grateful. Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately though, the main topic of that thread is what would have been used at the AP and on a daily basis. I am interested in what would have been used at court functions, for example, as I mentioned, the dinners/balls in Moscow/St. Petersburg in 1913.
