About this object

In center of the dinner plate, the imperial coat of arms, topped by the imperial crown, is featured on the white ermine lining of a gold imperial mantle. The medallion of the double-headed eagle is encircled by the chain of St. Andrew with the eagle, rather than the cross of St. Andrew on the bottom. Masks of lions on the rim alternate with military trophies rendered in gold on a cobalt blue ground.
