This amazing hand crafted Russian lacquer box depicts an old world village scene on a winter's night. The scene is highlighted in gold paint creating reflections off the paint in the windows, street lamps and lamp post. There is a Russian Orthodox Church in the background as the moon rises. 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 pictures below represent different angles and lighting to show how the light reflects off the gold paint. This amazing box measures approximately 4.75 inches across by 3.25 inches wide and 1.2 inches tall. The artist’s signature and the title of the box are painted at the bottom of the lid (See close up picture below).
