Price: Available on Request
Size: 23.5 cm (9 3/8")



In 1827, for Count Arakcheev, a series of plates were made, depicting the views of his Novgorod estate - the village of Gruzino.
In this set, there were 35 to 40 plates.
So far, only 19 plates have been preserved in museums and private collections.
So this plate might be the 20th or one from 19th which survived. This is how rare it is.
"The View of a Yacht from Village Gruzino on the River Volhov" is written on the reverse of the plate in brick color.
The Gruzino estate near Chudovo, Russia, was constructed by a team of Neoclassical architects under Vasily Petrovich Stasov for Count Alexey Arakcheyev in the 1810s.

The Yusupov factory favorite motifs were painted floral bouquets, garlands of leaves, herbs and flowers and this is why such marine picture is rare.

Prince Nikolai Borisovich Yusupov (Russian: Князь Никола́й Бори́сович Юсу́пов; 26 October [O.S. 15 October] 1750 – 15 July 1831) was a Russian nobleman and art collector of the House of Yusupov is on the photo.
The owner of Arkhangelskoye estate Prince Nikolai Yusupov Sr. (1750-1831), was a recognized authority in matters of art.
For nearly a decade he led Glass and Porcelain Factory in St. Petersburg. For 14 years (1818-1831) 70 young artists of Yusupov porcelain factory in Arkhangelskoye created their own style and handwriting in decorating.
The factory did not produce its own porcelain but instead used European mostly made by Sevres manufactury (see the mark).
As a result, porcelain, crafted and decorated in the Arkhangelskoye, was a special group that stands out among the Russian porcelain factories of the first third of the XIX century.

On the photo is a similar by border ornament plate with the 'View of the square at the hospital in the village of Gruzina’ from the series ‘Gruzina village views’. 1827. ‘Arkhangelskoye’ state museum.
