A Gardner Porcelain 'Naughty' Figurine
of a Reclining Maiden on a Bed. c.1920

On offer here is this very rare Russian porcelain erotic novelty figurine of a maiden laying on a mattress and covered by a blanket. The blanket is made as a removable separate section, which when partially or wholly removed, reveals the maidens buttocks, and more.
Made in the Gardner works (renamed Dmitrosvkaya fabrika) c.1920 using the original molds and stamped to the base with an early Soviet iron red mark for the period

In 1766, the English entrepreneur Francis Gardner, with the permission of Catherine the Great, established the first private porcelain factory in the Russian empire, in the town of Verbilky. The factory operated under the Gardner name until 1892, when it was acquired by M. S. Kusnetsov, who continued the production as Kusnetsov Brothers until 1917.
