Highly popular Cobalt Net Porcelain from The Lomonosov (Imperial) Porcelain Factory). This is an exclusive design that goes back more than half a century. It was inspired by the luxurious dining sets of Empress Catherine II, who reigned in Russia from 1762 to 1796. Each individual piece is hand painted with a striking combination of intertwining lines, drops and accents, by artists who carefully preserve the ancient art of porcelain painting and decoration. Materials used include genuine mineral cobalt, bone china and 22Kt gold. Our shop and website sells only "export-quality" Lomonosov porcelain.
