This unbelievable l hand painted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl throughout the entire lid. The lid is painted with a young maiden who has a sultry yet innocent look. She seems to be standing in front of a window that looks out on a leafy tree while dressed in a lovely pink dress that speaks of innocence - yet the look on her face can be interpreted as rather suggestive! 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 just over 5.75 inches long by just under 2.75 inches wide by just over 1 inch deep.
