The Guriev service was made in 1809-1816 and was named after Count Dmitri Alexandrovich Guriev, Director of the Tsars cabinet during the reign of Alexander I, who ordered the service. It was intended for the Winter Palace and originally known as the Russian Service. When the service was transferred to Peterhof Palace in 1848 it was renamed after Guriev.

The plates are decorated with gold borders on a glazed brick red base. The front shows scenes with subjects taken from Johann Gottlieb Georgi's "Folk Types of Russia" and Christian Gottfried Geissler's "Petersburg Scenes and Types". Motifs of St. Petersburg and Moscow copied from works by F. Alekseev, M. Vorobiev, and S. Shchedrin are also included. The service was originally commissioned for 50 guests but in the second half of the 19th century it was expanded to more than 4.500 pieces.

This item is collected at Iso Roobertinkatu 12 Helsinki after the auction has ended.
