This series of 74 large porcelain figures representing various nationalities of Russian Empire was created by Pavel Kamensky at Imperial Porcelain Factory,
St Petersburg between 1907 and 1917. The series was commissioned by czar Nicholas II to commemorate 300 years of the Romanov rule and initially was
supposed to consist of 400 figurines, but the ambitious project was cut short by the Revolution of 1917.
The idea was not new though. There was another
older series People of Russia produced by Russian Imperial Porcelain factory in late 18th century.
Also, please note that in addition to 74 large figures by Kamensky, there were dozens of smaller versions of these figurines made both before and after the
Revolution.
