Puzyr. A family of potters. Musii (1812–95) opened a workshop in Radychiv, Chernihiv gubernia, in 1842. His sons, Lavrentii (1845–1917) and Hryhorii (ca 1850–1930), learned from and worked with him. Eventually Lavrentii set up his own shop in Novhorod-Siverskyi. The Puzyrs produced decorative and consumer earthenware decorated with plant motifs and horizontal bands.
