FAMOUS COBALT NET

Cobalt net.

It is manufactured at the Imperial porcelain factory of hard-paste porcelain with elements of hand made painting. The author of this

pattern is A. Yatskevich There is very interesting story of this painting. There are some versions of the drawing cobalt net. But the most probable version is that this picture preserves the memory of the days of blockade of Leningrad (nowadays Saint Petersburg). This painting was made by Yatskevich at the porcelain factory in Leningrad in 1944. Now this pattern is a business card of this factory.

Anna Yatskevich worked in the factory during the blockade of Leningrad. She refused to evacuate and decided to stay in her hometown. The windows of the houses were covered with crosses. When the light beam illuminated the window the crosses become bright and strict. So was born the idea of creating a drawing of the famous service.

The set “Cobalt net” is represented in the collections of the Hermitage, the State Russian Museum, the State historical Museum and other major treasures of the culture.
