This absolutely stunning Russian hand painted and hand crafted lacquer box features numerous Kremlin Churches and Cathedrals as well as a view of the lovely Moscow skyline. This box is crafted out of a whole Mother of Pearl shell and the scene is painted on top of that! (See pictures below taken at different angles.) 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 beautifully detailed box is hand painted with the title of the box (MOSCOW or MOCKBA in Russian) as well as the artist's signature painted along the bottom of the lid. The title, signature and other information are also located on the bottom of the box (see close up picture below.) The box, of course, features the famous “Onion Domes” which Russian Cathedrals are famous for. This box measures approximately 7 inches wide, 4.25 inches across and 2.5 inches deep.
