Today artistic value remains unrivalled as it was two centuries and a half ago. Products stand out for the perfect combination of centuries-long traditions and modern trends and technologies.
Nowadays the "Imperial Porcelain Manufactory" produces about 4,000 types of products in a wide range: from tea, coffee and dinner sets, genre and animal sculptures, decorative plates. They are made of solid and bone china. Products are decorated in overglaze and underglaze painting, frequently using the rare and precious metals. The manufactory produces replicas of the museum's collection of XVIII-XX centuries. For decades the set «Cobalt net» (S. E. Yakovleva, A. A. Yatskevich), hallmark of the manufactory, is in the great demand. It was awarded a gold medal at the World Exhibition in Brussels.
