Ukrainian Vyshnya Clay Cup

With a simple and traditional design, this ceramic cup is hand painted and features a cherry design. The vyshnya (cherry tree) is a symbol of life, spring, and Ukraine. In folklore, it symbolized the beauty and youth of a woman. Many national poems, songs and stories featured cherry trees and cherry orchard. Ancient Ukrainians would also use the Cherry tree as a ceremonial object on the day of the vernal equinox (March 21). This symbol is traditional for Ukrainian tableware and other objects.

Great gift for yourself or lovers of Ukrainian folk art.
