This lovely hand painted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl depicting a golden sunset over a wintry forest scene. (Various pictures have been taken from different angles in an effort to avoid flash reflection and shadow and show the Mother of Pearl reflecting in the light.) 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 4 inches across by 4 inches wide by 1.5 inches deep.
