Kitten (Котик). A true to life rendition of a tabby kitten. This is the Abyssinian, a very popular breed of short hair cats. It has alert and relatively large pointy ears with a broad wedge-shaped head. Its almond-shaped eyes can be green, gold and other colors. The paws are small. Abyssinians are extroverted, playful and intelligent. Hand painted at the Lomonosov Porcelain Factory with factory backstamp. 5¼"x 5¾".

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.
