This big traditional teapot “Folk Patterns” was created at the Imperial porcelain factory as part of tea set “National ornaments” and has an author’s overglaze painting by Vorobyevsky A.V. Beside 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 filled with the vibrant and rich colours of scarlet red, mustard yellow, leaf green and finally the shimmering gold plating which brings the piece to the luxury level. This design features the most traditional Russian fairytales that are known by everyone, this piece will remind everyone’s childhood dreams and stories. 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”. The bright lid of the teapot has the same magic patterns as its body, as well as a wonderful red handle in the form of a leaf with gilding. The gilded handle of the traditional teapot is made wide so that you can easily hold it pouring tea.
