A pair of porcelain vases

signed & dated 1956

RCIN 73045

Presented as a diplomatic gift, the vases are decorated with underglaze painting, a technique restored from before the Revolution. The director of the factory worked with the veteran artist, Grigory Zimin (1875–1958) who painted these scenes. The factory’s production included vases dedicated to the seasons of the year, such as this pair, one of which has a summer landscape entitled ‘Stormy Day’, and the other, ‘Warm Winter’.

The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
