Gzhel. Blue & White Porcelain
The word Gzhel (Gzel) or Blue & White Porcelain, sometimes spelled as Gjel, is known throughout Europe and beyond, and comes only from a picturesque village by the same name, roughly 30 miles southeast of Moscow. The characteristic white-and-blue patterned tableware has been made in the same village for over two hundred years.
Quality Blue and White pottery is being produced in both the world-famous blue on white cobalt design and the colorful Maiolica earthenware. Gzhel is more than just fine china, it is an embodiment of the Russian artistic spirit. Because each piece of Gzhel (Gzel) is painstakingly handcrafted and painted, it is a piece of artwork that is individually unique. Each porcelain piece is made with the highest attention to detail, by people who devote their whole lives and careers to accentuate the art of Gzhel porcelain making, making it a testament to the highest quality of work ethic. Each of our Blue & White Porcelain - Gzhel items is 100% authentic and is stamped with the original factory seal!
