Imperial Porcelain Manufactory (Imperatorsky Farfory Zavod)

Imperial Porcelain Manufactory (Imperatorsky Farfory Zavod) Review

One of the most famous porcelain manufacturers in Russia, this factory was founded in St. Petersburg in 1744 to serve the imperial family. You'll come across Imperial Porcelain shops on Nevsky prospekt and elsewhere in the city, as well as in Moscow, but this shop at the factory is an especially well-stocked source for the world-famous hand-painted cobalt-blue china. There's also a porcelain museum here that's part of the Hermitage's holdings.
