    Vase in Milk Glass commemorating the VSKhV Agricultural Exhibition in Moscow, 1954-59.

    Vase in Milk Glass commemorating the VSKhV Agricultural Exhibition in Moscow, 1954-59.

    Measures 10" (25 cm) tall; the base is approx. 3 " in diameter. In double layered milk glass, with attractive artwork vignette of the emblem of the exhibit depicting collective farmers holding a sheath of wheat.

    In very good condition. No cracks or scratches although there are a couple of tiny chips near the upper edge that are nearly unnoticeable. The artwork and original gloss are beautifully preserved.

    The VSKhV (All-Union Agricultural Exhibition) first opened in Moscow in 1939. Essentially a giant theme park, it was greatly publicized and was even featured as background of several popular Soviet movies, not to mention endless Soviet and foreign documentaries. The exhibition complex closed during WW2 only to reopen in 1954 in even grander, more ostentatious format. In 1959, it was renamed VDNKh (Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy of the USSR) and although it later acquired the famous Space pavilion, the fair lost much of its original Stalinist luster and went downhill from there.
