A TOUR AROUND THE PERMANENT EXHIBITION “GALLERY OF SOVIET PORCELAIN”

01 january – 31 december

This tour will cover the porcelain made in this country between the 1920s and the 1980s. All landmark events of Soviet history found their echo in artistic porcelain.

Danko, Z. Kobyletskaya, A. Schekotikhina-Pototskaya, M. Ivashintseva. These works exist either in a single copy or in replicas made by the authors. You will also see products of the Leningrad, Dulevo and Dmitrov factories and find out their similarities, on the one hand, and distinguishing features, on the other. In addition, you will have an opportunity to learn the origin of the expression “on a silver platter” (in Russian: “on a blue-rimmed plate”) and where the teacups held by the female characters in Boris Kustodiev’s pictures were painted.
