Francis Gardner was an English merchant, who founded a porcelain production plant in the village of Verbiltsy (now Verbilki) in 1766. Gardner's porcelain plant became very successful, largely due to Johann Miller, who worked at the plant and was familiar with the new porcelain formula, developed by D. Vinogradov and implemented in Gardner's products. Between 1778-1783, Gardner's plant produced four tableware sets for Catherine the Great!
