A rare opportunity to acquire the full set of 12 spectacular collectors plates - the complete "Russian Legends" limited edition series by Palekh / Bradford Exchange.
The 1988-90 RUSSIAN LEGENDS series of limited edition decorative plates was the first collectors plate series ever produced in Russia. The twelve-plate series depicts famous Russian legends and fairytales. They are patterned after the designs and style found on Russian lacquer boxes from the village of Palekh.
The plates were produced with 16-17 layers of ceramic pigments and in 18kt gold on hard fired porcelain. The firing period was limited to 195 days at the historic Vinogradoff Porcelain factory. Distributed for Tianex by the Bradford Exchange, each plate was assigned an individual Bradex number. The plates are 7 1/2" (19cm) in diameter. The reverse side is written in Russian describing the title, story and serial number.
6 of the plates offered here still have their original certificates of authenticity by Bradex (the other 6 certificates were lost). All plates are in excellent (as new) condition without any defects.
