RKVMF (Worker-Peasant Navy) — the name of the naval forces of the Red Army. The program of "major marine shipbuilding" was launched in 1936. It was decided to create an independent fleet in the Baltic, Pacific and Black Sea theaters, as well as in the North. The main task of the fleet remained the defense of the coast and inland waters of the USSR. It was decided to support the light striking forces of the fleet with a full-fledged linear fleet.
The corresponding dishes were produced by various factories, including the Komintern factory. The plant (until 1921 — the Volkhov porcelain and earthenware factory until 1921). It was a member of N.K.M.P. or Narkommestprom (People’s Commissariat for Local Industry). Since 1920 in the USSR small and medium-sized enterprises whose products and services were intended for local consumption were considered a separate branch of the economy (in comparison with large strategic enterprises). At the same time, such factories created that unique objects. Until 1930, the Komintern factory produced porcelain and earthenware products, and then household earthenware. During the Great Patriotic War, the plant was destroyed and was no longer restored. Source: ru.wikipedia.org.
