Tsar Saltan – glass ornaments

Tsar Saltan – glass ornaments

A. S. Pushkin wrote this fairy tale poem in 1831.

The full title is “The Tale of Tsar (King) Saltan, of His Son the Renowned and Mighty Bogatyr (Mighty Knight) Prince Gvidon Saltanovich, and of the Beautiful Princess-Swan”.

Different Soviet glass plants made glass personages of that famous tale. They were sold in sets or as separate figures. 

The demand for these ornaments was always great in the USSR because every Soviet child read this poem. 

Some ornaments below are of that series.
