Wooden russian sledge couple





















Another holiday souvenir saved from car boot oblivion. This time from Moscow!

So many people go abroad, and want to bring something back as a memento, but overtime memories of the holiday fade and the objects loose their meaning. Sadder still, people die and family and friends have no knowledge of the objects significance.

This delightful couple are dated on the bottom, 1972. Theres a whole load more written on the base, but sadly I cant read russian or decipher cyrillic ! However on the off chance, theres some clever soul out there who can, Ive posted the label below!

Above, manufacture of manufacturing in Moscow, factory n°4, down it,its address "Moskva, Dokuchaev pereulok", price 1 ruble 95 kopeck
and the manufacturing date 1972, as well as references it, as a bar code.
