This service called "Iconographique Français" (not to be confused with that called "des Illustres Français" delivered in 1851 for the Ministry of Education), entered the sales store on April 6, 1832 (Arch. Sèvres, Vv2, f°49 v°50). Described "blue agate background, frieze of gold palm leaves, portraits of famous men painted in the cameo genre", it included in particular 96 flat plates with a unit price of 85 frs. Having been the subject of a restocking of 100 plates on May 6, 1834 (Vv2, f ° 80 v ° 54 and 55), of which our plate was part, the service was used as dessert service on the table of King Louis-Philippe at the palaces of Saint-Cloud and Compiègne from 1833 (with only 100 flat plates per château).
