The pattern “Antique” is based on the museum art piece of the famous “Raphael” dining set, which was ordered from the IPM Factory by Alexander III in 1883 and named after the ornaments of the famous gallery in the Vatican.
The final design of the dinner set “Raphael” was developed and approved with the direct contribution of Russian Emperor Alexander III. The rich decor included grotesque ornaments and medallions with allegorical images of grisaille. For the Raphael tea set, a special stamp was developed: a large monogram of Emperor Alexander III in Slavic script, filled with gilding and red paint. The work on Rafael dining set continued over 20 years, and after completion in 1904, it was placed in the Anichkov Palace at the disposal of the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna. The Raphael tea set became the most ambitious work performed at the IPM factory in the last quarter of the 19th century.
Tea Set “Antique” is a modern recreation of patter and shape of dinner set Raphael and made by the master of IPM factory M. Yavein. Each item of the tea set is unique in terms of color pattern, ornaments, painting composition.
