This lovely Russian Fedoskino mother of pearl lacquer box is beautiful! It features the CATHEDRAL AT SERGIEV POSAD - PART OF RUSSIA'S FAMOUS GOLDEN RING. This wonderful cathedral is well known for its famous blue and gold onion domes. The Mother of Pearl is inlaid into the papier-mache lid of the box before painting and it shimmers throughout the cathedral. 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. The colors are gorgeous and the light reflects wonderfully off the Mother of Pearl creating a rainbow of color! Hand painted on the bottom of the lid of the box is the title of the box as well as the artist's signature. The bottom of the box has both of these things along with the style of painting used - FEDOSKINO. This box measures approximately 5 inches long by 3 inches wide by 1.1 inches tall.
