Slavic Fairy Tale Altar Plate

CAD $40.00

Stunning vintage plates from the 1980’s perfect for any altar wall or witches kitchen. I actually ended up keeping a some for myself and hung them in my kitchen corner as I considered that room one of my main witchy working areas.

The beginning of the market for Russian-made collector’s plates coincided with the breakup of the Soviet Union. In 1988 (3 years before the fall of Communism), the first 12 plates produced formed the series RUSSIAN LEGENDS. Manufacture was accomplished in several Soviet/Russian porcelain factories, including the historic Lomonosov Porcelain Factory, and the finished products were sold by The Bradford Exchange under the Tianex imprint.

There was a pent-up demand for Russian-made goods and these colorful plates fit the bill perfectly. As production shot up, later issues came to be made in Lithuania, Belarus and even in the US. (China came last.) The plates were made with up to 17 layers of colored pigments on black porcelain and enhanced with 18kt gold. Eventually over 100 different plates came to be manufactured in a great many series. The artists, unknown in the USA, were famous Russian miniature artists from Palekh, Kholui, and Fedoskino. Each plate was given an individual “Bradex number”. Sizes were mostly 7¾” (19cm) in diameter. The backs of each plate carried information in Russian (except for later issues) together with the title and a serial number.
