The luxurious porcelain serving set, actually, one part of it that is housed in the collection of porcelain of the Museum once belonged to the court of the Obrenović dynasty. The porcelain set was made in the famous factory Fisher & Meig in Pirkenhammer, today Brezova (Czech Republic). In accord with its use, this serving set is lavishly decorated. The ornament made in 24 karat gilding is set upon the cobalt-blue foundation in Neoclassical style, and was made by Ernest Wahliss workshop in Vienna.
