HANDCRAFTED CLAY FIGURINES DECORATED WITH OLD RUSSIAN FOLK THEMES; CLAY FIGURINES, RUSSIA, Moscow, Russia
In the 15th century, the Dymkovo Settlement near the city of Kirov became an earthenware toy making center. The Russian craftsmen used a red clay and river sand mixture to create the most beautiful toys. The handmade Dymkovo Toys are an old Russian folk-art handicraft depicting traditional Russian culture. The figurines of animals and people are painted in many bright colors and themes. Our featured Dymkovo Clay Figurines include a well-dressed noble lady and a stylishly ornamented turkey. Set: 1 lady figurine (height 5 inches, width 3 inches) and 1 turkey figurine (height 4 1/2 inches, width 4 inches).
