The Imperial Porcelain Factory is a manufacturer of hand-painted ceramics in Saint Petersburg, Russia, also known as the Imperial Porcelain Manufacturer (IPM). It was founded by Dmitry Ivanovich Vinogradov in 1744 and has been sponsored by the Russian tsars since Empress Elizabeth. Many still refer to the factory, the Lomonosov Porcelain Factory, by its well-known former name.

Return to old name

On 29 May 2005, the shareholders of Lomonosov Porcelain Factory adopted a resolution to return to their pre-Soviet name, the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory.

The IPM has recently begun producing hand-made porcelain copies of the Imperial porcelain range exhibited in the State Hermitage Museum collection. This range includes dinner sets, tableware, vases, figurines from the famous series of Russian Peoples and other porcelain items from the range of porcelain made here since the foundation of the manufactory in 1744.
