This elegant hand painted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl through the entire lid. The lid is painted with a young maiden dressed in a lovely pink dress that flows around her! She looks to be carrying a platter of grapes and is surrounded by pink roses and leaves. The box has a 1920's Art-Deco look to it. 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 - SEE PICTURES BELOW!) 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 just over 7 inches long by just under 3 inches wide by just over 1 inch deep.
