    Russian chinaware...

    Its history back to the 18th century.

    The sugar bowl by Dmitry Vinogradov is the oldest and one of the most perfect creations in the chinaware field.

    Here, are two plates and a spoon out of a set belonging to Empress Elizabeth. They, too, were made by chinaware wizard Vinogradov.

    These enormous sets were used at official ceremonies in the Winter Palace--the residence of the Russian tsars.

    The events of the war of 1812 were reflected in the works of the chinaware craftsmen. The plates, cups and vases were adorned with portraits of the war heroes.

    The Egoist set is a splendid example of top-grade craftsmanship in the mid-19th century.

    The Girl with a Yoke is a masterpiece of china sculpturing in Russia. Created in 1815 it is on a par in artistic value with the best paintings of the time.

    Mastery and quality are the two words characterising Russian chinaware from its earliest days.

    ... The historic changes caused by the revolutionary events of 1917 were reflected in the subjects depicted in Russian chinaware. The very first years of Soviet government saw the emergence of a chinaware art that drew on revolutionary emblems and slogans, such as "Who doesn't Work Shall not Eat" and "Workers of the World, Unite!"
