Size:  13 x 11.5 inches (approximately - size of each calendar varies slightly, please see photos)

This is an original set of four (4) Soviet calendars from 1959. One features peasants at the beach enjoying some accordion music; one features Lenin; a third features a group of happy dancers in a city square; and the fourth features a vase of flowers.  Taken together, they represent an idealization of life in the Soviet Union at the end of the 1950's. 

Posters have been folded for many years, but remain in overall very good condition (small tears at some edges, see photos).

From a private collection.
