Imperial commissions augmented the Gardener Factorys prestige, and attracted a host of private commissions from wealthy members of the Russian nobility. When more private factories set up in Russia in the 19th century, the Gardner Factory maintained its high standards and continued to enjoy a distinguished reputation for excellence. Aside from the very high quality of their output, the Gardner Factory was alive to changing tastes and fashions. The defeat of Napoleon in 1812's Patriotic War by the Russians sparked a new wave of national self-consciousness which lead to a fresh interest into the life of the common man.The aesthetics of High Neoclassicism and the detailing of a Romanticised scene of Russian peasant life is characteristic of the period. The Gardner factory continued to receive imperial commissions into the late 19th Century. During the Soviet era, the factory was nationalised and renamed after the nearby town of Dmitrov. The Dmitrov Porcelain Factory created both mass-produced items and unique works of high quality, which received international acclaim and won awards at the 1937 Exposition Universelle in Paris.
