This is a unique USSR made antique tea set made from high quality porcelain consisting of 24 pieces i.e.,

6 cups, 6 medium plates, 1 large plate , 6 saucers , 1 tea pot, 1 milk pot, 1 sugar pot, 1 bowl, 1 flower pot. One cup has a slight scratch.

This set is made in USSR by LOMONOSOV, making imperial and highest quality porcelain.

It is extremely thin in texture and contain golden work of decorative art of a dancing girl .It is a rare set worth collectible for antique lovers.May be 70 years old.

I had acquired it from Kabul,Afghanistan 24 years ago. The set is in excellent condition

The pictures are attached.

Waiting for further advice.

Hi Ghulam

We have other threads already running on Lomonozov. I have written at least one quite lengthy article. Please go to the search box at the top right of the page and put in the keyword "Lomonozov".

These photos are a very nice addition, as is your exotic story.

Antique Russian Lomonosov Tea Set

I have been trying to find this set on-line to gather in formation on value and history. I obtained it in Russia years ago carried in back into the United States. I really would appreciate knowing the value of this set. Tea service for six along with condoments dishes, dessert plates and a vase.

Please call me at 805-482-2973. Moving and unsure how to sell the set.

Thank you for taking the time to reach me.


Not 70-years old
by: Petri

Based on the makers mark on the bottom, the set was made 1972-1986. So definitely not as old as 70-years. But nice set and not very often seen.



re: flower pot

It is not a flower pot - it is a waste (or slop) bowl. Tea drinkers would pour the hot water that warmed the teapot, tea that had grown cold so they could pour a fresh hot cup and if tea leaves were in the bottom of the cup they could dispose of them before serving the next cup.
