From Russia...another Show and Tell Thursday
I thought about making the title, "From Russia with Love". Then, I remembered it was the title to an old James Bond movie.
The teacup was given to me with love... a gift from one of my daughters. It is from the Russian Lomonosov Imperial Porcelain Factory. It was founded in St Petersburg in 1744 under the decree of Peter the Great's daughter, Empress Elizabeth.
Last night, as I was putting my thoughts together for this post, I realized the teacup is the only item I have from Russia. Do you have anything made in Russia?
Searching the internet, I learned so much about this beautiful Lomonosov china. If you collect teacups or just love to look at beautiful porcelain, click HERE. You will not be disappointed!
The design pattern is called Forget Me Not. Even the inside rim has a delicate pattern embellished with real gold.
By sharing with you my Show and Tell Thursdays, I've had the opportunity to re-connect with some of the lovely things I have collected over the years.
My thanks to you, dear readers and blogging friends.....
