This fantastic hand painted Russian lacquer box painted depicts a beautiful maiden cloaked in blueish-green sitting by an archway with a floral border and outdoor scene behind her. The box is accented with pinks - a pink ribbon, an orange and red flower in her hand, pink and fuchsia hair, as well as pink and peach flowers bordering the archway. The box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl through the entire lid causing it to shimmer in the light. 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. (Pictures have been taken at different angles to show how the Mother of Pearl Glows!) 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.
