Amazing cup with saucer “Folk Patterns” was created at the Imperial porcelain factory as part of tea set “National ornaments” and has an author’s overglaze painting by A.V.Vorobyevsky. Besides fantasy sceneries, Alexey Vorobyevsky also liked to interpret Russian folk-art motifs. Being richly colored and emotion-saturated, the painting recalls joyful folk carousel with figures of horses, roosters, fantasy birds, and exotic flowers all painted in vibrant red paints with golden plating and sunshine yellow contrasts. Alexey Vorobyevsky masterly and comprehensively transferred the folk-art images to the porcelain mural. “Russian Style” by A.V. Vorobyevsky was appreciated by contemporaries. At International Expo held in Brussels in 1958, the author was awarded a gold medal for tea services “Folk Patterns” and “Russian Lubok”. Gilding of the drawing elements perfectly complements the overall composition and makes the item ideal for your interior.
