(Photo to the left illustrates an extremely rare post-revolution (1930's-1946) RKVMF Russian Red Navy custard cup or small side bowl. Any Russian Naval dinnerware marked with RKKF or RKVMF is very rare and sought after.)

The rarity and uniqueness of Soviet or Russian Navy Dinnerware and Tableware as marked cannot be overly stressed or underestimated, especially given that it is the first-ever produced dinnerware for the newly created Workers and Peasants Navy! This was even before the creation of the USSR which was established in 1946 after the defeat of Germany and the dominion of Russia over Eastern Europe!

The very nature of post-revolution Russia's politcal and social structure was that everyone was considered to be of equal stature, including officer's and enlisted.

However, reality has shown that even in the Peoples and Peasants Republic the Senior Naval Officer's received special treatment, such as fine porcelain dinnerware!

Not much of Russian or Soviet Navy dinnerware survived the wars and revolutionary changes of the 20th century. First, Russia's Fleet and Navy from 1919 up to and including WWII was both small in numbers and in importance and mainly consisted of small coastal patrol craft, certainly not the ocean going trans-world fleet it possessed during the 1960's through to it's collapse in 1991.

Secondly, Russia's main focus from 1919 to 1945 was to survive as a country and political entity. Much of it's social, political, and manufacturing infrastructure was destroyed during the Russian Revolution and certainly during WWII, so its financial focus was not producing dinnerware for a small bunch of coastal ships. As such not much of Naval dinnerware was produced to begin with, and much of what was made was certainly destroyed or lost during WWII.

rum cup with double headed eagle

To the left is a 19th Century Imperial Russian Navy Rum or Spirit cup. Made of copper, riveted handle, double headed eagle as the Imperial Russian royal cipher, dated 1845, two manufacturers marks, and a 1/200 stamped measure. Some have referred to this copper cup as a "Shkalik".

imperial russian navy sailors drinking rum ration aboard ship 1893

The photo to the left was taken ca 1893 aboard the Russian Armoured Cruiser "Dmitrii Donskoi" (from the identifying tallys) which fought in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904–05 and was lost at the Battle of Tsushima and sunk in 1905. This photo clearly illustrates a group of Russian enlisted sailor's having their daily ration of rum or spirirts aboard ship. Note the "samovar" being used to dispense the spirits!

For more information and photos of antique rum cups used by the various navies of the world Click Here. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries most navies of the world followed the British Royal Navy tradition of each sailor having a daily ration of rum called a rum tot.

personal inkwell with double headed eagle, anchor and entwined dolphin The photo to the left illustrates a 1957 produced Soviet Navy porcelain serving platter or large serving dish with the Russian Anchor and Cyrillic VMF for Soviet Navy. This is an extremely rare one-of-a-kind piece of Russian Naval Dinnerware, perhaps the only one in existence today.

Thirdly, In the mid to late 1930's the Russian Navy was renamed from the RKKF to the RKVMF to enhance it's name recognition and as a self-recognized world power; not necessarilly because of the size or strategic importance of the Russian Navy. Obviously any dinnerware made after the name change would reflect the initials RKVMF. Then shortly after WWII in 1946 Russia was absorbed into what was known as the USSR or Union of Soviet Socialist Republics until it's eventual collapse in 1991. Again the Russian Navy changed it's name to the Soviet Navy and aptly renamed itself from the RKVMF to the VMF. So after 1946 any dinnerware made used the initials VMF.

So items that were very rare to begin with have now become even more difficult to locate, and are now possibly only able to be found as the personal possessions of Russian or Soviet sailor's who snagged them upon their discharge as memorabilia and have now passed away. But keep in mind what would have happened if this sailor would have been caught stealing "state possessions" for his own personal needs, and the fear he must have gone through! Off to the Gulag if he was lucky.

This Russian Naval Red Fleet small condiment bowl found above, as well as similar post-revolution Russian Navy dinnerware in general is a must for any serious Russian Revolution, WWII or Cold War Collector of Naval Militaria! The pre-revolutionary Imperial Russian Navy rum cup shown above is priceless to any serious Russian navy historian.

ww2 russian navy officer's wardroom china ww2 russian navy officer's mug bottom
ww2 russian navy officer's mug bottom
Illustrated above for your review is a post-WWII dated 1981 Soviet Navy Coffee Mug with the very classic Russian Navy Fouled Anchor design.

These authentic 1919-1946 WW2 Russian Navy and 1947-1991 Soviet Navy issued dinnerware and tableware items all have the classic Russian Fouled Anchor design as a throwback to the Imperial Russian Navy, and were used in the officer wardroom's of Russian battleships, cruisers, and naval shore installations.


Russian Red Fleet and Soviet Navy Dinnerware is VERY rare since it was only produced for the highest ranking Soviet and Russian Naval Officer's with much of it destroyed during WWII and after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990's.


As illustrated below all post-revolution Russian Red Fleet and the post-WWII Soviet Navy dinnerware displayed either 3, 4 and 5 letter initials along with a Star, Hammer and Sickle for the earliest pieces, or a crossed double and later single naval anchor. Below is a list of the initials and the attributed dates:
"RKKF" which stands for "Raboche-Krest'yanskaya Krasniy Flot" translated to "Workers-Peasants Red Fleet" - 1920s to early/mid 1930s
"RKVMF" which stands for "Raboche-Krest'yanskaya Voyenno-Morskoy Flot" translated to "Workers-Peasants Military Maritime-Navy Fleet" - mid 1930s to 1940s
"VMF" which stands for "Voyenno-Morskiye Sil'i Flot" translated to "Military Maritime-Navy Fleet" or Russian Naval Forces - 1946 to 1991.

Above 9.5" dinner plate represents the very first use of a post-Revolution insignia ca 1920s consisting of a white body with blue glaze of a Hammer and Sickle within a Star, the initials RKKF along with a stylized Hammer and Sickle.

russian navy 1919-1920's salad plate russian navy 1919-1920's  salad plate topmark Above 6" condiment bowls represent the third generation ca 1920s to 1930s of the post-revolutionary Russian Red Navy! They were specifically made for the Russian Naval Coastal Defense Force and Border Guards, what we call the Coast Guard, since the china has a green band. Blue was used exclusively for their deep water navy while green was used for their coastal and inland areas. Also note the lifesaver around the anchor! Of additional interest would be how these plates were all hand glazed and hand lettered before the firing.

The topmark shows the traditional Russian Navy anchor with the cyrillic initials RKKF which stands for Raboche-Krest'yanskaya Krasniy Flot translating to Workers and Peasants Red Fleet!

ww2 russian navy anchor crest insignia, ca 1920's to 1930's ww2 russian navy anchor crest insignia, ca 1920's to 1930's

A visitor to The Pirate's Lair translated this as the following "Raboche-Krest'yanskaya Voyenno-Morskoy Flot" (RKVMF) or "Workers-Peasants Maritime Navy Fleet". Note the unique Russian Navy stylized fouled anchor a throwback to the older pre-revolution Imperial Russian Navy.

Russian Militaria, Eastern Bloc and Soviet Navy Dinnerware and Tableware is the perfect gift idea for that special Russian Sailor or Russian Militaria Collector in your life, be it a Russian Navy Retirement Gift, a "Moving On Gift", and certainly as a Promotion Gift.

WWII Russian Navy China would also be a fantastic personal and unique "Official Government Gift" for a Russian Naval Attache', Russian Diplomat, Russian Ambassador, Charge' De Affairs, or any serious collector of WWII and Cold War Russian or Soviet Union Navy Russian Militaria!

Note that the pre-WWII Russian Navy (RKVMF) initials were changed to the post-WWII Soviet Navy (VMF) after 1946 which is an easy way to identify pre and post WWII Russian Navy China and Dinnerware.

Imperial Russian Navy Pre-Revolution Salad Plate 1890's to 1919
Story goes that this dinner plate was used by a "white russian" naval officer who had allegiance to the Czar during the Russian Revolution. In 1923 he and other officers and crewmembers sailed their ship from a Siberian port and ultimately scuttled it in Manila Bay so that the Bolsheviks or peasants would not capture the ship. Ultimately this Russian Naval officer found his way to San Francisco and settled there, and having passed away left this plate to his close friend.

NOTE: Through further research and help from "1942militaria" a collector of German and Russian Militaria we have found that the two initials on the plate are tranlated to the Imperial Russian Black Sea Fleet. Through further research we have come to find that this plate was possibly used aboard the Russian battleship "Potemkin" which was eventually scuttled by the White Russians (Interventionists) in Sevastopol in April, 1917 to prevent it from being captured by the Bolsheviks. The gold edging has been worn but still there and viewable, and the anchor topmark has some wearing as well. NOTE: The Imperial Russian Crest is Backstamped Below the Glaze!
