Service Marly Rouge was made for Napoleon I and delivered to Cháteau de Fontainbleau in October 1809, shortly before the Emperor arrived for
a one month stay. The service contained amongst various shapes, 180 plates. Its delivery coincides with an important period in Napoleonic history,
the signing of the Treaty of Vienna on 14 October 1809, which brought about the end of Napoleon's Austrian campaign and in which France
imposed harsh peace terms on the defeated Austria. By 16 October Napoleon had left Schönbrunn Palace for Paris, arriving at Fontainbleau on
26 October 1809.
Each plate was painted with a different butterfly in the middle within a ribbon-tied floral garland reserved on a gold band, the rim with a gilt foliate
border on a tomato-red ground within a gilt rim.
