vase (household miscellany)

Vase made of turned wood, painted with a scene showing a Mongoloid woman in an ornamented tunic and skirt in red, and high black and green boots. She is standing, spinning from a spindle into a small bag carried in the crook of her arm. Behind her is a farmstead with a square house made of planks and panels with a porch and a banner, and two outbuildings: an oven or vat and a pitch-roofed open booth. A cock and hen are beside the woman.

Made in Russia depicting people of Siberia.
