Lomonosov Porcelain Factory was founded in Sankt Petersburg in 1744 under the decree of Peter the Great's daughter Empress Elizabeth.
It is the oldest and the most significant porcelain factory in Russia. For more than 150 years it belonged to the Russian Imperial Family.
Very elegant porcelain coffee set is hand painted with gold and consists of:
6 coffee cups height 6 cm, diameter 7,5 cm;
6 saucers diameter 11,5 cm;
6 cake plates diameter 15,5 cm.
The most famous pattern of the Lomonosov porcelain – Cobalt net was created by Anna Yatskevich in 1944.
In 1958 Lomonosov Porcelain Factory presented their best creations at the Brussels World’s Fair. It was porcelain set with Cobalt net. It was not made specifically for the show, because already 14 years have passed since its production. In fact it entered the range of the plant. But suddenly it was this very porcelain set that won the gold medal.
