Queen Victoria purchased this dessert service from Minton’s stand the day before the Great Exhibition opened. The pattern was then named in her honour. Part of the service was sent to the Austrian Emperor as a gift. The Queen retained the remainder, supplementing it with plates bearing the VA cipher.
