This colorful hand painted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl which creates a rainbow of color in the sky behind trees. The trees are a bright green of summer while the geese fly over the lake. 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. The Mother of Pearl is inlaid into the papier-mache lid before painting. (See the pictures below. Various pictures have been taken from different angles in an effort to avoid flash reflection and shadow and show the Mother of Pearl reflecting in the light.) This box is signed by the artist and the style of painting - FEDOSKINO - are written on the bottom of the box. This box measures approximately 4.75 inches long by 3.25 inches wide by just under 2.25 inches deep.
