Il trionfo della Bellezza (The triumph of Beauty)

The Museum hosts a valuable set with Sèvres china table decorations bought in Paris in the 1795-96 by Alvise Querini, the last ambassador of the Republic of Serenissima, who lived in France from 1795 to 1797.

He was a man of great taste and was also fascinated by the white gold of the Ancien Regime. régime During his staying in Paris, Alvise Querini often visited the manufacturing room of Sèvres where commissioned a biscuit china set a pâte with groups and small pictures for his table.

In the dining room you can admire a table for eight people laid with plates for knives, soup and hors d’oeuvre, gravy boats, compotes and butter dishes.

The set is composed by 244 items perfectly preserved till today. It has variety of forms, perfect gilding, detailed decoration, pure and precise colours, clear and shining paint .

China sets are part of the collection and some of their items are dated back to the second half of the Eighteenth century, such as the water coolers compotes in the shape of a shell, probably designed by the goldsmith Jean-Claude Duplessis. Most of the items in the set has the trade of the manufacturing R.F. for République Française and the word Sèvres that substitutes the double crossed L of the royal monogram from 1793 to 1800.

The rich chromatism of the most important table sets from the half to the end of the Eighteenth century was exhalted by small pictures, groups and biscuit china pots that here are magnificently represented.
