This vintage teapot is from the tea service “Recollection” made at the Imperial porcelain factory on the form “Alexandria” after the Museum model of the 1820s, which was created specifically for the Peterhof Cottage Palace. The vintage teapot was painted with polychrome overglaze painting by one of the most talented artists Bogdanova who decorated this famous porcelain shape with refined and elegantly costumed figures. The decorative table objects of the service were painted with magnificent flower bouquets, friezes and discrete dahlias and roses, composed in rectangular lockets, and set off with rich gold decor. The classical composition is harmoniously combined with the ancient motifs of particularly in the predominance purple and gold paint which give regal splendor to this gala service. The gold filigree ornament is accentuated with semiprecious agate. Moreover, the vintage teapot has a gilded handle of an unusual shape, which gives it an even more noble appearance. The centenary history of the form, the magnificent floral ornament and overglaze painting allow the teapot to fit perfectly into any interior.
