The top shot reminds me of a Chinese chest my mother received many years ago from a missionary to China. It was beautiful. When my mother died, it went to my sister as I recall which is fine as she really wanted it. It was very ornate with dynamic colors.
Beautiful pieces of art! The painted chest reminds me a little of Norwegian "Rosemaling" - similar but different!
That's quite a decorated chest. Let's see, what might I fill it with?
I love brightly painted furniture!
There is some beautiful work here!
That trunk would look good in my place! Beautiful!
I would love to visit this museum someday!!
Some museum shops have excellent and unique merchandise, as you have shown well.
Perhaps a little Romanian Gypsy influence from the artists heritage!
The Russian crafts work is excellent, I agree.
Ooooh! More temptations! What beautiful pieces!
Now, THAT is painted furniture!
Nice looking chest.
Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
