This lovely hand painted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl throughout the entire lid. The lid is painted in a 1920's style with a hat full of fruit and what looks like an art deco stained glass window behind the lovely young lady dressed in a beautiful dress! The Mother of Pearl is inlaid into the papier-mache lid before painting. (Pictures have been taken at different angles to show how the Mother of Pearl Glows!) 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 along the bottom of the lid and is also signed on the bottom. This box measures approximately 5.75 inches long by 2.75 inches wide by just over 1 inch deep.
