Imperial Porcelain St. Petersburg - (Ceramics, Porcelain, Russian) Founded in 1744, the porcelain factory was created by the order of Empress Elizabeth to promote native trade and native art. The factory produced wares exclusively for the ruling Romanov family and the Russian Imperial Court. They made statues, busts, bisque portrayals of Russian scenes and dinnerware. They are well known for their cobalt blue net pattern dinnerware. In 1900 they started making Art Nouveau pieces. The factory changed its name in 1925 to Lomonsov Porcelain Factory. The porcelain was marked with the mark of the reigning monarch so it is easy to date.
