In honor of the anniversary, the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory presents new product series reconstructed by the museum archetypes of 1920s from the collection of the Hermitage.
    In the post-war years the new government proclaimed a plan of the ideological propaganda: it was necessary to show the revolution and happened changes in the country’s life from the positive point of view. The Bolsheviks wanted to destroy the old system, to impose a new ideology, to bring up an absolutely new world outlook and radically transform human consciousness by mass media and art. In such way the Soviet agitation porcelain, a witness of this epoch, was created in the oldest porcelain factory in the cradle town of the revolution, Saint Petersburg. In 1918 the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory was renamed to the National Porcelain Manufactory and became under the management of the Public Commissariat of Education. It was a new page of the Manufactory’s history. The main aim of the Manufactory was to change the environment of people’s lives. The Manufactory began to create an utterly new kind of products; herewith the centuries-old traditions of the artistic porcelain were saved.
    Sergey Chehonin, a great artist and master of miniature graphics, became the art-director of the Manufactory. He came up with the style of the agitation porcelain. The first bright steps of revolutionary arts and crafts are represented in his works such as “Red Ribbon”, “Sickle, Hammer and Pinion”, “The Red Flag”, “RSFSR”.
    Another important artist is Natalia Danko, the sculptor created the chronicle of first years of the Soviet power. She made the series of porcelain sculpture representing men and women of the revolutionary period: “Woman-embroiderer the flag”, “Policewoman”, “Fortune-teller”, “Street Thugs”, “Union”.
    Kazemir Malevich, the founder of supremacism, and his students, Suetin and Chashkin also were the artists of the National Porcelain Manufactory. They brought up the absolutely new esthetics of products. Nicholas Suetin was working in the Manufactory for many years creating individual works such as the tea set “Women”.
    The agitation porcelain drew attention of the soviet and foreign collectors of that time. To this day it is the desired decoration of each collection and staring object of learning by art historians. Various works and products are put in our assortment: tea and coffee sets, decorative plates, genre sculptures and even the amazing chess set by Natalia Danko, reconstructed by the museum archetypes.
