    Peasant Girl Wearing a Kokoshnik Headdress, a Milk Jug by Natalia Danko, Leningrad Porcelain Factory (Lomonosov, LFZ), 1950s.

    Peasant Girl Wearing a Kokoshnik Headdress, a Milk Jug by Natalia Danko, Leningrad Porcelain Factory (Lomonosov, LFZ), 1950s. Danko was a particularly important - perhaps the most important - Russian porcelain artist in the first part of the Twentieth Century.

    Measures 5 1/4" tall, 4 1/4" base, 6" from handle to nose (13.5cm; 10.5cm; 16cm). Wonderfully "over the top" artwork based on Russian folk motifs. Marked with a blue 1950s Lomonosov maker's mark on the bottom along with a red Cyrillic ВС ("VS") mark indicating that this was the highest quality product, especially worthy of being exported. There is also a black serial number 30 on the edge, probably an individual stamp of a workmaster.

    In outstanding, excellent condition. There are no flakes or chips anywhere. Except for a few very minor scuffs to the gold highlights of the woman's headdress - none of them really noticeable or detractive given the overall splendor and intricacy of the motif - the figurine is essentially pristine. The rim and interior in particular are unblemished white of trademark LFZ quality. This is a splendid piece through and through. Danko was the designer of the world famous revolutionary chess set where the pawns on the capitalist side all had mournful faces and were wrapped in chains. She headed Lomonosov's sculpture department from 1919 to 1941. Danko died at the age of fifty during the German siege of Leningrad in World War 2. Many of the objects she designed were very popular and stayed in production for years after her death.

    / 280a in "Soviet Porcelain, Guide for Beginning Collector". /
