Huge and Magnificent Flower Vase in Cut Glass Lead Crystal featuring Six Decorations bestowed upon the VLKSM Communist Youth organization and its emblem, late 1960-1980s. Standing over 12" in height and weighing 9 lb, this is truly a museum-quality piece. This unparalleled item can be a unique focus point for the most advanced Soviet collection - and a fine home decoration as well.
Cup Trophy with Moscow Kremlin, hand-painted in traditional Palekh manner, signed by the female artist, circa late 1940s - mid-1950s. This beautiful and very impressive piece measuring over 12" in height was used as a "transferrable" trophy to a best regional ski team - i.e. passed from one team to the other based on results of the annual tournament. In good condition; missing the lid and shows some wear to the bottom, but the main portion with hand-painted main tower of the Kremlin and florals is perfectly preserved.
Lacquer Box with a view of Moscow Kremlin, by the Fedoskino artist V. P. Rogatov, signed and dated 1968. The image of the Spasskaya clock tower at dawn, a favorite subject of Soviet lacquer artists, is of stunning artistic quality - far above what we normally see on similar boxes. This hand-painted piece of Socialist Realism art is a true gem!
Award plaque with simulated bronze profile of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, famous Russian composer of The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and The 1812 Overture.
