SPLENDOR AT THE IMPERIAL DINING TABLE
No dynasty or empire exhibited more elegance
or splendor than the Habsburgs,
particularly after Maria Theresa upgraded
dining service and detail at Schönbrunn Palace
in the early 18th century.
You can see firsthand the china, porcelain,
gold and silver service that were used
for an elegant table service (for 140 persons)
when you visit this royal Viennese estate.
Rare hand painted porcelain from East Asia & Sévres,
magnificent Fayence candelabra, and the incredible
Imperial "panorama plates" . . .
chests still full of matched tea cups and saucers,
gold and silver flatware, even silver bottle
"neck labels" to identify wines of the world.
What a Baroque spectacle to dine and be served
in the grand dining halls at Schönbrunn Palace.
