Everyday life of a well-to-do peasant in the late 19th – the early 20th centuries

L.G. Zhukova house dates back to the early 20th century. It belonged to a well-to-do family. Urban influence is seen everywhere here, even in the structure of the house.
The residential part of the house shows an exposition of the “Everyday life of a well-to-do peasant in the late 19th – the early 20th centuries.” Interior paintings, porcelain ware, citified clothes, expensive furniture, laces, and a Swiss clock show that the owners were well provided for.
The hayloft space is home to the exposition of the “Trade and Fair Activities” presenting a potter trade of the Russian North. 
Fairs were festive events in the folk life. Everyone had a job there. A good master of the house would be inspecting inventory, cattle, choosing horses, a cart and a sledge, while  a practical housewife would be hurrying up to potters to replenish her stock of clay utensils. Sellers would be praising their wares, trying to prove their high quality. The woman, though, would not be taken in by words; she would take the pot in her hands, turn it around and click on its side: if sound is sonorous, the porridge will come out good.
This exposition of diverse ceramic utensils is located in the hayloft of a well-to-do peasant’s house.
