The cavetto painted with classicizing figure with antique ornaments in black against a terracotta ground, the border with continuous anthemion chain, with blue Imperial cipher for Nicholas I.

The plates are amongst some of the most famous objects made by the Imperial Porcelain Factory during the historicism movement and as such, are rare and exceptional collectors’ pieces. Dating from the 1840s, they display the outstanding craftsmanship that had been achieved in Russia by the 1830s and are an exquisite example of the Etruscan style – one of the first Russian “neo” styles. The decoration exemplifies the fascination of this époque with antiquity, but instead of directly quoting ancient sources, the artists re-interpreted the antique fashion in a new way.
