A unique Russian gift shop, family owned andoperated since 1972
Motivated by A love of their homeland, Paul Shukin and his family are curators of Russian art, antiques and rarities. Lisle’s Maison Russe (1720 Ogden Ave., 800 778-9404) is a testament to their commitment to share the culture of Russia and the talents of its artisans.
Shukin has an extensive inventory of one-of-a-kind creations, reasonably priced for gifting or for personal indulgence. Traditional hand-painted nesting dolls are expected, but Maison Russe also features a variety of other authentic items. Intricate filigree tea glass holders are works of patience as well as art. Delicate cobalt net porcelain and hand-crafted lacquer boxes are a feast for the eyes. Antique jewelry and carved figurines showcase the talents of artists who crafted them, while handmade wooden toys hearken back to a time well before video games.
A selection of unique greeting cards, appropriate for framing, are available, as well as antiques, collectibles and vintage Russia- themed books.Edit Module
