By Imperial Porcelain Factory (Russian, founded 1744)
Crafted in Russia in the 1950s, this delightful porcelain group of figures enjoying winter sports will make a splendid addition to any home.
This collection of porcelain figures includes a boy and girl holding skis and a boy playing ice hockey. These three figures bear the marks of the Lomonosov (or Imperial) Porcelain Manufactory (Russian, founded 1744). The group also includes a pair of seated female figures wearing ice skates. These models were created in Russia in c.1950, around the same time as the Lomonosov figures.
The five figures have been crafted from white porcelain, parts of which are painted and highlighted in gold. They stand on shaped bases, one of which (belonging to the female skier) is signed and dated.
The Lomonosov factory was a prestigious hard-paste porcelain manufacturer in Russia. In the 18th and 19th Centuries, the factory supplied porcelain wares to the Russian Imperial Court, and they created many goods for the elite in the Soviet Union in the 20th Century. Porcelain dinner sets, plates, vases, figurines and other items produced by the factory are today considered highly collectable.
