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 flowers and what looks like an art deco stained glass window behind the lovely young lady dressed in a beautiful dress! The box also has a band of gold edging around it. 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 along the bottom of the lid and is also signed on the bottom of the box. This box measures just over 5.75 inches long by just under 2.75 inches wide by just under 1.25 inches deep.
