1738, model by Johann Joachim Kaendler.

This service, which was produced in Meissen for the Saxon minister Imperial Count Aleksander Józef von Sulkowski and his wife Maria Anna Franziska von Stain zu Jettingen starting in 1735, is one of the first large orders that was not made directly for August III and in which Johann Joachim Kaendler was involved as a modeller. The full extent of this order was can only be guessed at, but a total of around 600 pieces is assumed. The service mainly consisted of plates, platters and shallow bowls. Production came to an abrupt end in 1738 because the Imperial Count fell from grace and was banished from court.
