Antique Imperial Russian Pocelain VERBILKY GARDNER Cup with Saucer ca. 1800 year
I would like to sell cup with saucer stamped Verbilky Gardner.
Cup and saucer are very rare and precious antique items.
Although often backed by large financial capital, many of the unsuccessful Russian entrepreneurs had been unable to find knowledgeable masters of porcelain production. The name of the expert who helped Francis Gardner is still not precisely known. Archive materials mention an arcanist – a workman who knows the secret of porcelain making – called Johann Miller.
Gardner himself went to great effort to learn the secrets of the trade. He travelled around the Russian Empire in search of high-grade materials employed in porcelain production – kaolin and quartz. On 24 February 1766, he was given official permission by the College of Manufacturing to open a porcelain factory. This date marks the beginning of the history of the Gardner Factory, which was located in a small village called Verbilki in the Dmitrov district of Moscow Province.
Items are beautiful hand painted.
Condition: Excellent condition.
-cup: height 5.8 cm, diameter 6 cm,
-saucer: diameter 13.2 cm, height 3.5 cm.
