This beautiful and very detailed Russian lacquer box is hand painted and inlaid with Mother of Pearl. The Mother of Pearl is set in the sky behind the wooden Russian Orthodox Church, church building and cabin. Both the Russian Orthodox Church itself and the church building are topped with the traditional Onion Domes that Russian Orthodox 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 bottom of the box. This box measures approximately 4 inches long by 4 inches wide by 1.5 inches deep.
