Chinese trifle

In 17-18 centuries, Sergiev Posad craftsmen produced in large amounts wooden carved and painted figures of merchants, boyars' wives, dandies, fashionistas, hussars, and monks, which could be played as dolls and used to decorate home interiors.

Sergiev-Posadsky craftsmen also mastered production of what is called 'Chinese trifle' — brightly painted carved miniatures (from 3 to 10 cm in height) of genre and fair figures and household characters resembling oriental porcelain miniatures.

In this section you can see, select and buy 'Chinese trifle' items made by distinguished masters of Sergius Swing carving — Alexander Varganov and Nikolai Antishin, browsing the cards below.
