General Porcelain is highly sought after for its beauty and strength. Consider the fact that many dental bridges, crowns, and veneers are made from porcelain.
Porcelain is essentially pottery made of kaolin, a white colored clay, and other raw materials.
Now called the “Lomonosov Porcelain Factory,” it began producing collectible animal figurines and dinner sets.
The clay is formed, decorated, glazed and fired to make a porcelain work of art.Thereafter, it took on the name Imperial Porcelain Factory and began selling its wares to the public.The factory underwent its first of several name changes in 1917, when the Russian monarchy was overthrown.The pattern was inspired by a tea set made for Catherine the Great.It was the dream of many Russians to own such finery.
