1 Russian Wooden Lace from Tomsk

Russian Wooden Lace from Tomsk

Posted on September 23, 2015 by tim

Sometimes we publish these masterpieces – real lace, looking light and exquisitely crafted on wooden houses of the past. Not all of them are well preserved, many of them were destroyed either by natural causes or by human activities as often they don’t get the protection and attention they deserve, so instead of referring to modern photos there are only archive photos left. So today another masterpiece of late 19th century wooden architecture – some of the photos are modern, some from the Soviet period and the oldest ones are from a long time before. Hope you like it!

For some reason they don’t build anymore of those. However a hundred years ago this style was still popular.

    Thanks Yuri for sharing these photos with us!

    I would love to live in one of these houses. Hopefully there is a group that can help preserve the houses that are still in good condition. It would be almost a crime to allow these master pieces to fall into ruin.
