This beautiful brightly colored Russian mother of pearl lacquer box features a peacock sitting in a lush green tree! The Mother of Pearl is made into the 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. The colors are wonderful and the light reflects off the Mother of Pearl in a rainbow of color! (See the close up pictures below. Pictures have been taken from different angles in an effort to avoid flash reflection and shadow.) Hand painted on the bottom of the lid and on the bottom of the box is the title of the box as well as the artist's signature. This box measures approximately 5.75 inches long by 2.7 inches wide by 1.2 inches deep.
