According to his granddaughter, Niels Bøgholm acquired the service at the estate auction of Mrs Councilor Laura Charlotte Tietgen. This took place in her home, Kronprinsessegade 30, 1st floor, Copenhagen, on behalf of Attorney Vagn Aagesen on Tuesday 4 December 1917. The catalogue mentions no. 106a in Danish “Tea, Sugar Bowl and Creamer, Russian Work”, which may relate to this service. Thence by descent until today. Laura Charlotte Tietgen was a widower of the great Danish businessman C.F. Tietgen (1829–1901). He was, among other titles, the owner of the Great Nordic Telegraph Company, which did great business in Russia. C.F. Tietgen was close to the Danish Royal House, including Tsaritsa Maria Feodorovna.
