Porcelain Figurines

Being extremely durable, porcelain is the perfect choice for producing not only the highest-quality serveware, but also mesmerizingly-gorgeous figurines. Russian porcelain figurines rank among the very best in the world. The ambitious nobility of porcelain figurines – their epic clarity for all their intimate smallness, the fairytale heaven they form, and above all, the luminous and impeccable surface of the white porcelain – suggests that there is no imperfection in the world. And this wondrous ability, inherent in both the porcelain material itself and the expertly-magical styles of human, animal, and inanimate object figurines, is what sets Russian figurines apart from anything else in the world. No matter which figurine, style, price point, or maker is chosen, from the traditionally folk-styled Gzhel figurines to the true European royalty-worthy Imperial Porcelain figurines, one can be absolutely certain that he or she is getting a world-class item that will bring never-ending feelings of warmth, awe, and pride with its subtle, yet ever-persistent halo of noble beauty and class. Each figurine we sell is authentic and hand-made in Russia, and bears the mark of its respective maker on the bottom. Beware of imitations being offered elsewhere!

Porcelain Figurines

Porcelain is a very special material which, ever since its invention in China two millennia ago, has never seized to captivate people’s minds, hypnotizing with its noble luster and magical feel. This precious, seemingly otherworldly ceramic material looks translucent and soft, while being exceptionally strong and amazingly long-lasting. Made of kaolin, feldspar, and transparent glass, fired at high temperature, a great number of porcelain items have survived for a great many centuries, now gracing the shelves of museums and lavish private collections.

Being extremely durable, porcelain is the perfect choice for producing not only the highest-quality serveware, but also mesmerizingly-gorgeous figurines. Russian porcelain figurines rank among the very best in the world. Examining them closer, it becomes apparent that they are not simply realistic representations of their subjects, but are actually their symbolic illustrations, modeling, stereotyping, and allegorizing in one – of the Russian self. The perfect union of super high-quality porcelain and tremendous artistic abilities of Russian sculptors produces truly mind-boggling figurines, having the aura of plenitude that only the power of positive artistic thinking can confer. Such is the mythical strength invested in the porcelain objects – all the more mythical because their fragility suggests that the myth can collapse unless the objects are enshrined – that for all their Russianness they seem like universal human and animal types.

The ambitious nobility of porcelain figurines – their epic clarity for all their intimate smallness, the fairytale heaven they form, and above all, the luminous and perfect surface of the white porcelain – suggests that there is no darkness at noon and no imperfection in the world. And this magical ability, inherent in both the porcelain material itself and the expertly-magical styles of human, animal, and inanimate object figurines, is what sets Russian figurines apart from anything else in the world. No matter which figurine, style, price point, or maker is chosen, from the traditionally folk-styled Gzhel figurines to the true European royalty-worthy Imperial Porcelain figurines, one can be absolutely certain that he or she is getting a world-class item that will bring never-ending feelings of warmth, awe, and pride with its subtle, yet ever-persistent halo of noble beauty and class.

Each figurine we sell is authentic and hand-made in Russia, and bears the mark of its respective maker on the bottom. Beware of imitations, being offered elsewhere!
