Tableware of the Russian Tsars

 

Hermitage Amsterdam is a branch museum of the Hermitage Museum of Saint Petersburg in Russia. Interestingly, I had not planned to visit this museum at all, and it's not on my original itinerary.

 

However, on the first day in Amsterdam, I came across posters near my hotel about the "Dining with the Tsars" exhibition at Hermitage Amsterdam, a special exhibition of the imperial tableware that belonged to the Russian Tsars. I thought about it for a few days, and decided that since I'm unlikely to visit Russia any time soon, this is a very rare chance for me to see the fine porcelain ware of the Russian Imperial family. So here I was!
