Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
The Imperial Porcelain Factory was founded in 1744 by the order of Empress Elizabeth of Russia. Its original function was to produce the finest porcelain wares exclusively for the ruling Romanov family as well as the Imperial Court. After the factory's privatization in 1993, these unique cultural hand-painted productions were made available for purchase worldwide. Now, the Imperial Porcelain Factory's partnership with Saint Petersburg Global Trade House ensures that these wares can be purchased in The United States and Canada in a safe and efficient manner. Furthermore, perhaps most importantly, this partnership allows admirers of the finest porcelain products the ability to purchase these goods with peace of mind, knowing that their purchase is entirely authentic and free of the various low-quality fabrications that have permeated the market.
All of the items produced by the factory are stamped on the bottom with the original factory seal, identifying their authenticity. The seal features the imperial double-headed eagle, the factory's founding date, 1744, and the words "St. Petersburg" inscribed below. Some of the porcelain products produced by the factory include coffee and tea sets, cups with saucers, goblets, snuff boxes, dinner sets, flower vases, sculptures, as well as individual fine china plates and cups engraved with the Russian Imperial Court's coat of arms. Furthermore, included in these products is the famous trademarked Cobalt Net pattern, inspired by one of Catherine the Great's favorite tea sets. This timeless design features thin hand-painted cobalt-blue lines interspersed with golden tear-drops.
Saint Petersburg Global Trade House president Natalia Orlova is confident that serious collectors, shoppers with a keen eye for beauty, as well as those simply looking to purchase authentic Russian souvenirs will rejoice at the opportunity to obtain these items from a distinguished and reputable source. She explains, "We have established a loyal customer base because we provide only the highest quality authentic Russian goods and souvenirs. Our customers come to us because they know they're purchasing a slice of Russia's deep cultural roots."
