This beautiful handcrafted Russian lacquer box is hand painted in the FEDOSKINO style. The artist has painted a country village on the banks of a lake with the sun setting behind the trees in the background (see close up picture below). The Mother of Pearl is inlaid into the papier-mache lid before painting. Russian lacquer boxes are famous for the many layers of painting and the layers of lacquer between each layer of painting. These numerous layers give the 3D impression of depth. Some boxes have over 10 layers of lacquer between the layers of paint. This box is hand painted and signed by the artist. The style of painting - FEDOSKINO - is also written on the lid of the box. This box measures approximately 3.5 inches long by 3 inches wide by 1.1 inches deep.
