A pair of vases of identical form and scale, notably with the same cupid handles, is in the collection of the Hermitage, St Petersburg, illustrated, T. Kudriavtseva, Russian Imperial Porcelain, St Petersburg, 2003, pp. 118-9.  Believed to date form the late 1820s, the Hermitage vases are painted with genre scenes.  It was in 1827 that the director of the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory, Komarov, wrote "It can surely be said that the [sculptural elements of Imperial porcelain] surpass all those made in this kind elsewhere.  At least nothing has been brought so far to Russia that could rival our art."
