The imperial porcelain factory, also known as the imperial porcelain manufactory (abbreviated as ipm), is a producer of hand-painted ceramics in saint petersburg, russia. It was established by dmitry ivanovich vinogradov in 1744 and was supported by the russian tsars since empress elizabeth. Many still refer to the factory by its well-known former name, the lomonosov porcelain factory.
By the beginning of the 20th century, ipm had become one of the leading porcelain factories in europe. Ipm porcelain was famous for its exceptional quality.
It was produced from paste made of the highest quality ingredients on up-to-date equipment. This paste was stored in cellars for 10 years before use in production.
The art nouveau style influenced the shapes of the porcelain. Porcelain was produced with whimsically curved forms decorated by stylized plants, mermaids and other art nouveau motifs.As a rule, the vases were covered by underglaze decor. Every vase had a unique form. The underglaze decoration made it possible for the artists to paint changeable seasons and winter landscapes. Ipm began to produce technical and chemical porcelain due to the end of imports of porcelain from germany during world war i. The production of fine porcelain was decreased to a minimal level.
Only easter eggs were produced in large quantities for easter celebrations of soldiers. Europe depends on the country for 2 days to 3 weeks. In the usa depending on the state 3-7 weeks.
