Founded in 1744 by Peter the Great's daughter, Empress Elizabeth, Imperial (Lomonosov) Porcelain Factory is one of the oldest porcelain manufacturers in Europe. In fact it is older than the first English porcelain producer. In the days of Czars the company was named the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory. Similar to the house of Faberge, it was an exclusive supplier of the Imperial Romanov family and their closest relatives for nearly two centuries.
Over it's long and proud history, the factory has created thousands of porcelain masterpieces that can be seen in the world's leading museums, including the British Museum in London, the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the State Hermitage in Saint Petersburg. Today Imperial Porcelain products are avidly collected and include a large offering of porcelain tea, coffee, and dinner sets in white porcelain and bone china and variety of figurines, gifts and sculptures.
