Collective Farm Girl with a sheaf of wheat (Колхозница (девушка) со снопом ). The image of a farm worker in the Soviet Union was a standard symbol of the embodiment of the ownership of the Soviet land. Dulevo factory, mid-20th century. USSR, first issue, 1957. 5¾". Near fine condition. 1 only, as shown.

Nina Alexandrovna Malysheva (1914-1983) designed this piece originally. She was a Soviet sculptor and porcelain painter and worked at the Dulyovo Porcelain Factory, where complex multi-figure sculptures were created on the theme of childhood and happy motherhood, classical ballet, and dance. Some of her most famous sculptures are "Manicure", "Lezginka", "Phone conversation", "Girl with chickens". She took part in international and all-union exhibitions. Her works can be found in museums in Moscow, Tver, Omsk, and Lugansk.

Dulyovo (aka Dulevo) Porcelain Works is one of the most famous Russian (and former Soviet) porcelain manufacturers. The works were founded in the Dulyovo wasteland (now Likino-Dulyovo) in 1832 by merchant Terenti Kuznetsov.
