Porcelain mug labeled Classes Vystrel (выстрел = "shot" in Russian).
The Higher Rifle School of the command staff of the Red Army was established in November 1918. The name "Vystrel" is most likely an abbreviation of the full name in Russian. In the youth of the Soviet Republic they were fond of making words from abbreviations. In 1929, a sniper course was specially created at the Shot courses. With the outbreak of World War II, the "Shot" classes were evacuated from Solnechnogorsk, Moscow Region, to the city of Kyshtym, Chelyabinsk Region, and several branches were organized.
The inscription is copied from the original subject of agitation porcelain. Such porcelain is also called propaganda-dishes; it was one of the tools to create a positive image and importance of the organization, along with uniforms, special insignia and unique awards. We offer here a beautiful item for domestic use, which is undoubtedly a great gift!
A durable mug of a convenient shape weights approximately 300 g and holds 330 ml of liquid. Diameter 8 cm, height almost 10 cm. The inscriptions are applied as hot decals (paint is baked into the surface at high temperature), this is not a cheap stencil. The inscriptions are fixed securely and can be washed in a dishwasher.
At the bottom there is a copy of the brand of the manufacturer: GLAVFARFORFAYANS, NKMP RSFSR, plant "Pravda" Dulevo (ГЛАВФАРФОРФАЯНС, НКМП РСФСР, завод им. "Правда", Дулёво). From 1918 to this day, it is the Dulevo Porcelain Factory named after the newspaper "Pravda" (in Russian means "true"). Initially, the production was founded in 1832 in the town of Dulevo near the village of Likino. Entrepreneur Terenty Kuznetsov, the son of the founder of the first porcelain factory in Gzhel, decided to expand the family-owned enterprise and founded his own business. Since 2012, it is a private enterprise and continues to produce quality products. Source: farfor-antik.ru and dfz.ru.
