People in national costumes – glass ornaments

People in national costumes - glass ornaments

“Fraternity of peoples” was a glass ornaments’ series that started being produced in the 1960s.

These were glass figures of people in national clothing.

All these ornaments were painted by hand.

The idea was to show all the nations which were joined under the Soviet red flag.

Ordinary people bought these ornaments just because they looked funny.

It is difficult to say how many units of the “Fraternity of peoples” serial were included.

At the least, there were 15 glass figures in their traditional clothes.

Why fifteen ones at least? That’s because the Soviet Union consisted of the 15 republics by that time.

Some of those ornaments are below.
