angelarts1 Store Vintage Russian Travel Poster RARE Soviet USSR Folk ArtTajikistan Tadzhikistan I apologize I had no better way to photograph it. However Ifeel you can see the poster enough to understand condition as well as the vibrantartwork colorations.This poster is really quite something!I have researched this piece and find that it must have been aspecial Art Travel Poster commissioned by the airline.The oddest thing is that the spelling of “Tadzhikistan” onthis poster is found very few places online except a Sept 1991 article from theLos Angeles Times Newspaper. There are images labeled with the same spellingthough.All other references refer to is spelled as “Tajikistan”.This is the information I have found online. It explains indirectly,more or less, the spelling change.The poster has damage however there are no missing pieces. NO Odors!I feel it could be repaired & preserved by appropriateframing.The photos detail the damage.Along the top right edges it is a bit tattered.At the top edge there are 2 rips.At the bottom near one foot there is a rip that is not on theedge. See photoThere are ripples from being rolled.I see no other damage.The artwork is incredible! There are initials and 73 at the bottom left corner.I feel it is the artist signature with the date.Although it has a bit of damage, I feel it is monumental as ahistorical airline travel poster with beautiful artwork.I am sure the new owner will be someone that feels the sameand will value it greatly.Please feel free to ask any questions you might have. We welcome inquiries. Information below is that which I have found.

Located in Central Asia, the Tajik SSR wascreated on 5 December 1929 as a national entity for the Tajik people within theSoviet Union. It succeeded the Tajik Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (TajikASSR), which had been created on 14 October 1924 as a part of the predominantlyTurkic Uzbek SSR in the process of national delimitation in Soviet CentralAsia. On 9 September 1991, Tajik SSR declared independence from the SovietUnion and was renamed the Republic of Tajikistan. After the dissolution of theSoviet Union, the state ceased to exist on 6 November 1994 with the adoption ofthe new Constitution of TajikistanHistoryOne of thenew states created in the process of national delimitation of Soviet CentralAsia in October 1924 was the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic – Uzbek SSR orSoviet Uzbekistan. Soviet Tajikistan was created at the same time within thepredominantly Turkic Uzbek SSR as an Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic(Tajik ASSR) – one rank below a Soviet Socialist Republic in USSR geopoliticalhierarchy. The new autonomous republic included what had been eastern Bukharaand had a population of about 740,000, out of a total population of nearly 5million in the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic as a whole. Its capital wasestablished in Dyushambe (today's Dushanbe), which had been a village of 3,000in 1920. In December 1929, Tajik ASSR was detached from the Uzbek SSR and givenfull status as a Soviet Socialist Republic – Tajik SSR. At that time, itscapital was renamed Stalinabad and the territory that is now northernTajikistan (Sughd Province) was added to the new republic. Even with theadditional territory, the Tajik SSR remained the smallest Central Asianrepublic.With thecreation of a Tajik republic defined in national terms came the creation ofinstitutions that, at least in form, were likewise national. The firstTajik-language newspaper in Soviet Tajikistan began publication in 1926. Neweducational institutions also began operation at about the same time. The firststate schools, available to both children and adults and designed to providebasic education, opened in 1926. The central government also trained a smallnumber of Tajiks for public office, either by putting them through coursesoffered by government departments or by sending them to schools in the UzbekSSR.Under Sovietrule, the Tajik SSR experienced some economic and social progress. However,living standards in the republic were still among the lowest in the Union. Moststill live in rural qishlaqs, settlements that were composed of 200 to 700one-family houses built along a waterway. Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4
