AJ40. Brest The Turnip Family 4.5" 6n


This Brest set represents the traditional Russian folk tale about The Turnip. This set is still made today in Belarus, but this is an older set with the USSR label.

In this story, an old man plants a turnip which grows very large, when he tries to pull the turnip it won’t budge. The family tries several times to pull the turnip forming a longer and longer chain. With everyone pulling – the grandfather, grandmother, granddaughter, the dog, the cat, and finally the mouse the turnip pops from the ground. In Russian the story is like a tongue-twister.
