  • White Tiger from Lomonosov Porcelain Factory

A large porcelain White Tiger sculpture from the Lomonosov Porcelain factory. The majestic white tiger (sometimes called bleached) is a pigmentation variant of the familiar orange and black Bengal tiger. The white is seen in the wild from time to time and can weigh up to 500 pounds (230kg). This beautiful sculpture is 6⅜"x11⅜" and weighs 3¼ pounds. Red "Made in Russia" Lomonosov backstamp. 1, as shown. 

Two talented artists collaborated to produce many of the "Porcelain Zoo" animal sculptures. Porcelain painter Viktor Zhbanov and sculptor/modeler 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.
