This lovely hand crafted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl depicting the sun reflecting off the clouds off in the distance behind the snow covered Russian Orthodox church and the wooden cabin. The church is painted with the famous onion dome that Russian churches are famous for. 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 3.1 inches long by 2.25 inches wide by 1 inch deep.
