"Gobelet" refers to the officers in the king's household responsible for the bread, wine and fruit to be served to his Majesty.
The "Service du gobelet du roi" was ordered by Louis XVI in 1783 from the Manufacture de Sèvres to serve his officers at Versailles. It is decorated with friezes of myrtle leaves and wild cornflowers entwined with a crimson ribbon. In the center of each plate, a wreath of cornflowers encloses a rose painted to look natural and positioned differently on each plate. This dinner service reflects society's renewed interest in Nature.
Used by earlier generations as an ice bucket, hence its earlier designation: rafraîchissoir. Today, it serves often as a centerpiece, filled with flowers.
