The latest addition to Yuri Traisman Foundation collection is Russian and Soviet glassware. Gift pieces, decorative vases and other glassware with Soviet symbols, made on special commissions or mass-produced, demonstrate the wealth of emblematic Soviet themes that made their way into the fragile world of glass and the craftsmanship of Soviet glassmakers who drew on the age-old experience of glass making and revived and carried on the entire range of historical techniques to convey Communist ideals.
