Antique Russian Painted Peasant Chests Exhibited in Moscow

Admirers of colorful wood painting are welcomed to the exhibition Wedding Chests of the Late 19th – early 20th Centuries

       It was opened in the All-Russian Museum of Arts and Crafts and Folk Art, Moscow, on June 12, 2019.

      At the exhibition you can see more than thirty unique items of the Russian peasant household of that time. 

      Of particular interest are the Northern Russian samples of the 17th and 18th centuries, which served as prototypes of peasant wedding chests. They were made of strong oak wood and intended for brides as dowry. The chests were painted with bright fairy tale images: epic and folklore characters, unknown creatures, and folk merrymaking.

      The chest gained wide popularity in the middle of the 19th century. At that time wider chest manufacture began in Veliky Ustyug and Kholmogory, as well as in Kostroma and Vyatka provinces.

Where: the All-Russian Museum of Decorative, Applied and Folk Arts at the address 3, Delegatskaya Street, next to metro stations Novoslobodskaya and Dostoevskaya, Moscow.

      When: from June 12, 2019, to August 14, 2019.

      Open hours: from 10 am to 6 pm.
