Starting with the theme of Versailles, the choice was made to focus on the gardens, the groves and the king’s parties with some views of the castle. This theme federates the more general taste for nature and gardens in vogue today. While King Louis XIV had the gardens of Versailles landscaped with fountains and groves, he decided to throw a party for queen and her mother called the “Fêtes de l’Ile Enchantée” which lasted six days. 600 “only” people were selectively invited to the party: the castle, still in its original size, could not accommodate all the guests, who would then live in their carriages! This service represents the gardens, seen from the castle, and the shows of these festivities.

Fully decorated, it will make a superb welcome plate on your table. Its large size will also allow you to serve an assortment of canapes or amuse-bouche.
It represents an aviary in a grove. The rim of the plate is in gold with the sun rays of the king painted. Then the rest of the engraving takes a yellow ochre tone to prolong the gold effects and the royal lights.
