This wonderful little handcrafted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl which creates a golden sunset off in the distance behind the small snow covered church and cabins. The Mother of Pearl is inlaid into the papier-mache lid before painting and when the light reflects off of it, it looks like the sky is glowing! (See 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.) 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 box is signed by the artist and the style of painting - FEDOSKINO - is written on the lid of the box. This box measures approximately 3.5 inches long by 3 inches wide by 1.25 inches deep.
