Sly Fox Patrikeevna – glass ornaments

Fox Patrikeevna or Kuma Fox is a character of many Russian and Ukrainian folk tales. For example: “Fox and Wolf”, “Fox and Hare”, “Man and Fox”, Cat, Rooster and Fox”.

One legend says this name Patrikeevna was patronymic of the Lithuanian Grand Duke Patrickeyev, known for his cunning and insinuation.
