Beautiful Vintage Gzhel Porcelain Vase
Souvenir of the Russian hockey team "Izvestia" (Izvestia means "news" and is the name of a newspaper)
Hand made in Russia in the late 1980’s
Purchased in Russia around 1990 so this was NOT an export item.
Never displayed. In storage since brought to the US.

This vase is in perfect vintage condition with no chips, stains, crazing or cracks.
The cobalt blues and the whites are vibrant and the glazing is beautiful.

Stamps: "Gzhel", "1C" (1st Quality), "19P.80K" (19 Rubles 80 Kopeks, in the late '80's was more than an average worker's day's salary, this indeed was an expensive hockey team souvenir)

Gzhel porcelain dates back to the early 18th century when private potters in the clay-rich region 20 mi. east of Moscow started producing porcelain pieces. Hand made Gzhel porcelain continues to be produced today.

See my other ads for more Gzhel pieces (pitcher, sugar bowl, spinner).
