Polar Bear. One of the first designs from Lomonosov, this timeless piece was first introduced at the Paris Exhibition of 1925. Its Art Deco styling holds its own today against modernism. Elegantly modeled polar bear looks good from any angle! Detailed and finely glazed milky white porcelain with hand painted features. White porcelain is one of the hardest to fire as any defect shows up. Produced in the Lomonosov Porcelain Factory. Stamped on the bottom is the "LFZ" factory logo and it is backstamped "Made in Russia". 9⅝"x17".

Two talented artists collaborated to produce many of the "Porcelain Zoo" animal sculptures. Porcelain painter Viktor Zhbanov and sculptor/modeller Pavel Veselov. The fruit of their cooperation produced unique figures that are natural and distinctive in their poses.

The Lomonosov Porcelain Factory (Ломоносовский фарфоровый завод) has had a long history, starting with its name. When founded in 1744, it carried the name Imperial Porcelain Factory (Императорский фарфоровый завод). In 1925, it became Lomonosov, named after the scientist and writer Mikhail Lomonosov (1711-1765). Finally, in 2005, it came full circle and was renamed the Imperial Porcelain Factory (or Manufactory), or IPM, for short.
