Presented by La Préfecture du Berry to Amélie, Princess of Orléans On Her Marriage To The Future King Carlos of Portugal.
This important dinner service comprises of 60 armorial plates and three footed compote dishes. Each plate has a white ground centred by a polychrome and gilt armorial depicting the union of the arms of Braganza and Orleans beneath a crown with the inscription “hommage du Berry 1886”, within a cobalt blue and tooled gilt border.
Amélie of Orléans (28 September 1865 – 25 October 1951) was the last Queen consort of Portugal. As the eldest daughter of Prince Philippe, Count of Paris, and his wife Princess Marie Isabelle d'Orléans, she was a "Princess of Orléans" by birth. On 22 May 1886, Amélie married Carlos, Prince Royal of Portugal. He was the eldest son of King Luís I of Portugal and Maria Pia of Savoy and ascended the Portuguese throne as Carlos I in 1889. Carlos was assassinated in Lisbon in 1908.
