This lovely pastel colored pink and blue hand painted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl. The Mother of Pearl is set in the sky and the box is then painted to look as if the sky is lit up in pinks, purples, and blues. Nestled among the snow covered trees is a quaint little cabin perched on a hill. 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.
