Yaroslavl Folk Art Figures

by wanderlustig Online Now Jun 19, 2003 at 6:16 PM

When I was in St. Petersburg last month I was looking for interesting souvenirs, something different ,not the usual matrioska dolls. In the gift shop of the Usupov Palace, I found wonderful little folk art ceramic figures. The shopkeeper told me they are "majolika" from the town of Yaroslavl. I bought a few and now I am sorry I didn't buy more. Does anyone know anything about this charming art form and who I can write to to buy more?
