Mini Moments - Glass Animal Figurines

Have a mini moment every time you gift or glance at a hand-crafted glass figurine from The Russian Store!

These hand-blown miniature glass figurines are the best quality, coming straight from St. Petersburg, where glassblowers have perfected the technique of glass blowing a long, long time ago.
