On the cover: Plate from the Frog Service. The Frog Service was commissioned by Catherine the Great of Russia in 1773. It owes its name to the Frog Marsh or La Grenouillère, the site that Catherine had chosen for the building of her Chesmenski Palace. Created by Wedgwood and Bentley, the service consisted of almost 1,000 pieces of Queensware including the specially designed Catherine shape plate. Each piece is adorned with the frog emblem and hand painted with over 1,000 different subjects depicting views of English landscapes.
