Personal (Собственный) Teacup and Saucer. The original service on which this pattern is based was created by D. I. Vinogradov in the 1750s in the factory then known as The Imperial Porcelain Factory. It was established by Empress Elizaveta Petrovna. Vinogradov (sometimes spelled Vinogradoff), besides being a notable artist in his own right, developed the formula for Russian porcelain. The pattern is labor intensive with small lilac and yellow flowers intertwined with a gold netting on a white porcelain background. It is similar to the highly popular cobalt net pattern developed first in the 1950s and still made today. These "Personal" cups are not to be confused with them and were much more limited. We have only four. A teapot ($225) is also available (one only). Made at the Lomonosov Porcelain Factory, in St. Petersburg, Russia. 3" tall by 3⅜" diameter (cup) and 5½ (saucer).
