This lovely FEDOSKINO Russian lacquer box shows a winter scene of two snow-covered cabins on a lake painted under a winter sky with a pastel colored forest behind them. The mother of pearl is inlaid into the lid depicting a glow in the sky. This particular box is made from a whole shell that makes up the lid (see pictures below of the inside of the lid). 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 amazing box measures approximately 4.75 inches long by 3.5 inches wide and 2.25 inches deep. The artist's signature as well as the style or school of painting - FEDOSKINO - are painted on the bottom of the box.
