This beautiful Russian hand painted and hand crafted lacquer box features a number of famous Kremlin buildings and churches as well as St. Basil’s Cathedral, one of the top 10 wonders of the world! This box is made from a whole shell of Mother of Pearl and the scene is painted on to the Mother of Pearl! (Pictures have been taken from different angles so the reflection can be seen more clearly.) The box, of course, features the famous “Onion Domes” which St. Basil’s Cathedral and the other Kremlin Cathedrals are famous for. 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 beautifully detailed box is hand painted with the title of the box "MOSCOW" or MOSKVA in Russian as well as the artist's signature painted along the bottom of the lid. This box measures approximately 5 inches across, 3.5 inches wide and 2.25 inches tall.
