A Russian porcelain dessert plate from the Gothic Dessert Service, Imperial Porcelain Factory, apparently unmarked. The vibrant multi-color border within a gilt rim with central medallion is decorated to resemble stained glass windows in Gothic cathedrals, consistent with the Gothic Revival design of the Alexandria Cottage, beloved residence of Nicholas I & his wife, Empress Alexandrovna Feodorovna. This service was first worked on between 1832 & 1834, although later additions were made. The lack of a mark on this plate, although the foot is gilded as wtih other Imperial services, means that it is almost certainly painted on whiteware of the period of Alexander I (1801-1825), when many plates were unmarked. Diameter: 8 3/4 in. (22.2 cm).
