The State Porcelain Factory's archives for 1927 indicate that V. Kornilov produced only one tureen called 'The Hunt', using the form from the Chekhonin's Jubilee service. For comparable items from the Jubilee service, see Exhibition catalogue, The Voice of the Time Soviet Porcelain: Art and Propaganda, St Petersburg, 2017, p. 80, no. 21.
Vladimir Kornilov worked at the State Porcelain Factory only for a short period of time between 1926 and 1928. His designs were influenced by Sergei Chekhonin’s style, which is recognisable on the present lot.
We are grateful to Vladimir Levshenkov for his assistance with the research of the present lot.
