In 1804, at Gorbunovo, another village in Dmitrovsky district, Moscow Region, a porcelain factory was founded that in 1811 came into the hands of the Moscow merchant Alexei Popov. The products of this factory, created in the best traditions of European porcelain, occupy an honorable place in the history of Russian ceramics and at the same time have their own unique features - a bright and broad palette of colors, careful treatment of the details and a special composition of the porcelain paste. Among the best items made in the Popov factory are dishes and vases in which a colored coating is combined with gold ornament and rich polychrome painting, and also the services with relief decoration and miniature sculptures. After the death of the owner, technical and artistic standards declined, and in 1875 the factory closed. Visitors to the Museum of Porcelain.Display can also view individual examples of items produced by the factories in the village of Gzhel outside Moscow that has long been famous for its clays and its traditional ceramic industry. In the first quarter of the 19th century this area became a major center of Russian porcelain production.
The local enterprises imitated the products of the leading Gardner and Popov factories, but the quality of their output varied. The Gzhel items were united by an astonishing originality determined by their affinity to folk art.
