Otter with Fish (Выдра с рыбой). A dynamic figure of a sleek, brown sea otter standing upright with his catch. A fine example of Lomonosov wildlife modeling. 8½" x 4½". With the Lomonosov backstamp. 

Sea otters, once historically abundant in the North Pacific ocean, from northern Japan to Alaska to Mexico, nearly became extinct due to large-scale commercial hunting. By 1911, hunting had reduced the its population to fewer than 2000 individuals in the most remote and inaccessible parts of its range. Luckily, sea otter conservation, one of the greatest successes in marine conservation, restored the population and the otters now thrive.

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.
