His father Pyotr Khlebnikov received the merchant certificate in 1832 and, possibly, had his jewelry production. Where and what education the young Ivan was not known, he probably worked in the organization of his father from his young age, then continued his job, since Ivan Petrovich, in preserved documents, was mentioned by the merchant of the 1st guild, selling silver, gold and diamonds In the silver row of the city part.

Given the overgrown scale, the participation in the sons of Mikhail, Alexei, Nikolai, Vladimir, in 1880 a trading house "I.P. Khlebnikov with his sons and Co. "

Filling shops of all kinds of jewelry products of various costs, performing orders of eminent Russian and foreign persons, making cathedral and temple masterpieces, the company grew. In 1887, the heirs formed a joint -stock "Partnership in the production of silver, gold and jewelry of I.P. Khlebnikov, sons and Co.". It was a new form of government with the initial capital of 660,000 rubles.

Several such products were exhibited in the gallery of antique gifts of the Lermontov: a cup holder combining the Art Nouveau style and classic Russian ornament, and a silver tablespoon of 1887 of the classical form.
