Touches of Old Russia

Our new apartment won't have these kitchen reminders of another era. We light our stove by opening the valve on the gas line on the wall; then we use a sparking devise as we turn the stove knob.

Such beautiful craftmanship! Do you find such delicate detail in many things there?

I love the old looking things!

Hi, Macs and Denise.
We love the look of these old things, but it's funny to see them in big, concrete, soviet-built apartment blocks--with steel doors. These great old things almost seem out of place.
