This lovely Russian lacquer box is hand painted with a Eurasian Bullfinch and snow covered Rowan or Winter berries on a blue background. 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. (SEE PICTURES BELOW). Hand painted on the bottom of the box is the style of painting - KOHULI, the title of the box SNEGEER (or "Bullfinch" in Russian) along with artist's signature. This box measures just over 6 inches in diameter and just over 1.25 inches high.
