The Zhostovo Factory was established in 1825. However, the history of the craft goes back to the very beginning of the 19th century when first craftsmen’s workshops for painting of lacquered items made of papier-mache were founded in the Troitskaya volost (the present-day name of the area is Mytishchi district of the Moscow region), namely in the villages of Zhostovo, Ostashkovo, Khlebnikovo and Troitskoe. The Vishnyakov brothers stood at the origins of the factory. The price list for the goods they offered said: “The Vishnyakov brothers’ manufacturing enterprise – lacquered metal trays, sugar bowls, glass holders, papier-mache jewelry boxes, cigar cases, tea caddies, albums and more… since 1825.”
Floral compositions are a signature pattern of the Zhostovo art which combines realistic images of flowers and berries with artistic generalization in traditional Russian decorative brush painted ornaments on chests, birch bark boxes, spinning wheels and other household objects. There are historic patters of floral compositions made of a variety of field and garden flowers such as “flower bouquet”, “scattered flowers”, “flower garland” and “wreath”.
