    "The Feat of Cossack Kryuchkov", stone lithograph, 1914.

    "The Feat of Cossack Kryuchkov", stone lithograph, 1914. Handsome Lubok print features the heroism of Kuzma Kryuchkov, the most famous Cossack in World War One and the man who won the first St. George Cross of the war.

    Smaller size: measures 14 x 10 . Marked at the bottom with the particulars of the Sharapova lithography firm, complete with the company's telephone number.

    Very good to excellent condition. Vibrant colors. Only one tiny tear on the left hand margin and it has been dealt with by the application acid-free paper tape. With the exception of the fact that this print now curls because it has been stored rolled for many years, it looks precisely the way that it did when it was purchased, most likely in the fall or winter of 1914.

    Kryuchkov, an almost stereotypical Don Cossack cavalryman from the town of Kalmykov in the district of Ust-Khopersk, was the first Russian hero of the Great War. He and only two comrades impetuously took on a patrol of twenty-seven German cavalrymen in August of 1914 and soundly defeated it. His image was seen everywhere in the Russian Empire for months afterwards.

    The smaller size of this print makes it an excellent candidate for framing -particularly if you already have framed medals or other war memorabilia displayed on the walls of your study. It would balance nicely between two crossed swords or even a sword that is crossed over its own scabbard!
