Borzoi (Борзая). The graceful Borzoi was the favorite hunting breed of the Russian aristocracy. This wolfhound has a narrow head and silky, often white, coat and is an even tempered dog. The word "Borzoi" means "swift". Lomonosov produces one Borzoi in its entire dog collection and it's the fine hand painted porcelain figure that is seen here. 8" length, 4" height.Hand painted porcelain, marked LFZ on the bottom. 1, as shown. 

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.
