This wonderful and brightly colored Russian lacquer box features Little Red Riding Hood. The scene is very detailed - we see the wily wolf licking his chops in anticipation of the meal that we know will never come; Red, with her basket full of treats for Grandmother; Grandmother's house in the background and the detailed woods surrounding them. 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. (SEE PICTURES BELOW). Hand painted along the bottom of the box is the style of painting - PALEKH along with artist's signature. This box measures just over 5 inches by just over 5 inches and just over 1.25 inches tall.
