Book - 250 Years of Lomonosov Porcelain Manufacture 
SKU: 10000

 Ranging from snuff-boxes to monumental, multi-figured centerpieces for the Tsar, the display of masterpieces featured in this book reveal fascination with porcelain as the "white gold." Porcelain in Europe was reinvented at the court of Saxony in 1718 which led some 25 years later to the establishment of the Imperial Porcelain Factory in St. Petersburg (Russia). Lomonosov Porcelain is the third oldest porcelain manufacturer in Europe. 
The tradition of fine manufacturing established there continued through the Imperial and Soviet eras, but it was the demands of the factory's Imperial and aristocratic patrons in the 18th century that led to the wonderfully high artistic and technical standards that are still upheld today. About the Author Galina Agarkova is a writer who specializes in the Decorative Arts. Nataliya Petrova is an Art Historian and has been Director of the Leningrad Porcelain Factory Museum for 20 years.
