Amazing coffee cup and saucer ” Story about the fisherman ” is the author’s work of Bogdanov V. G. based on the book graphics of Bilibin. Ivan Bilibin gained popularity with his illustrations of Russian folk tales and Slavic folklore. His work was throughout his career inspired by the art and culture of Old Russia. The plot of the composition gives a common motif to all the details of this coffee pair. A magnificent drawing on the base of the cup illustrates the plot from the fairy tale of Alexander Pushkin “The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish”, where the fisherman caught a goldfish and it offers him the fulfillment of his wishes for freedom. The handle of the cup is shaped like a fish. The saucer has a classic circle shape and has a circular ornament in the form of goldfish and blue sea. The fabulousness of the composition is complemented by the restored Museum form “Bilibina 1”. This coffee cup will be an amazing addition to the tea ceremony.
