This small 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 a joyful folk carousel with figures of horses, roosters, fantasy birds, and exotic flowers all painted in the colours scarlet red, leaf green, mustard yellow and shimmering gold gilding. This fabulous piece of artwork signifies the rich and traditional Russian folktales that are known by everyone. 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 traditional 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 teapot is made wide so that you can easily hold it pouring tea. Gilding of the drawing elements perfectly complements the overall composition and makes the item ideal for your interior.
