Ivan Petrovich Khlebnikov was born in St Petersburg and was the son of a jeweller. In 1865, he founded his own firm with his sons, and opened a factory in Moscow in 1870. Khlebnikov rose to the top of his profession, and counted among his clients tsars, grand dukes, and duchesses. He produced new works of silverware for the Gatchina Palace, Anichkov Palace and Winter Palace in St Petersburg, as well as fifty religious ornaments for the Church of Christ the Saviour in Moscow. In 1879 he was officially appointed to the Russian court as purveyor of silver.
