Grandfather Frost in the Village (Дед Мороз в деревне). A pair of children form a snowman in the foreground of the first doll with a rustic village behind them. The second doll shows the same village from another angle with a crescent moon above it and the third continues the theme. The last two pieces changes directions somewhat by introducing little creatures, one a lively snowman and the other a penguin with a bow tie and a cap. An interesting detailed "kustar" (see below) egg nesting doll that we received from Russia as a sample of perhaps a future product. For the time being, we have only the one. Painting, woodburning and lathed shapes.  5½" in height.

Cottage industry workers (Кустарная промышленность) was important for rural peasants and their families in parts of Russia starting in the 16th century and developed extensively during the 19th century, producing a wide range of arts and crafts in wood, textile, and metal. Some of the more enterprising formed cooperatives. These vintage and antique items are highly sought after these days.

The archetype of Santa Claus, Jack Frost and Grandfather Frost is the Master of Cold, Winter and Frost. Generally an old man with a flowing white beard, a staff signifying that he is the ruler, and a warm overcoat and boots. In Russia, the homeland of Grandfather Frost is Arkhangelsk.
