Title: Brooch: Maiden in Cockoshnik
Artist: Frolova Nina
Size: 4.5x1.5
Size (inches): 1.5x0.5
Price: $120 $85

This brooch was painted by a talented fedoskino artist Nina Frolova.
Frolova has crafted this exquisite portrait of a young girl in traditional Russian attire. She is wearing a kokoshnik, or traditional headdress. These kokoshniks were very ornamental, and originally were worn only by married women. The girl is also wearing a traditional white shirt underneath her sarafan. Both practical and decorative, the traditional costume is very unique to Russian culture, and many fine examples of kokoshniks and sarafans are displayed in museums throughout Russia.
The brooch is painted on paper-mache blank.
The brooch is NOT signed.
