From the dust jacket -----
For economic reasons, to the middle of the 20th century the Hutsul region remained an area that had not experienced any noticeable progress in domestic production. This was quite a poor land.For domestic use the Hutsuls continued using and purchasing the works of village craftsmen , the woodcarvers, potters, and coppersmiths, among many. Thus these works survived, these beautiful objects created with artistic taste andblessed with a naive worldview - the clay plates, pitchers, stove tiles, the icons on glass, as picturesque as the Carpathian landscape; the carved in-wood candelabra-trinities, and hand crosses, which preserved in their designs the centuries-old ritual history and tradition of the country; and the metal jewelry for women and men.All these objects naturally attracted the interest of museums and private collectors.
The first volume of the "Ukrainian Antiquities in Private Collections" series of catalogues and albums presents folk art of the Hutsul and Pokuttia regions of the eastem Carpathian Mountains and their foothills, which was collected and is held in private collections in Lviv.
