This amazing hand crafted Russian mother of pearl lacquer box is absolutely stunning! It features Moscow's famous ST. BASIL'S CATHEDRAL and the MOSCOW KREMLIN. This lovely cathedral is well known for its famous onion domes as well as for its colorful towers. The Mother of Pearl is inlaid into the papier-mache lid before painting - and shimmers in the cathedral. 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 gorgeous and the light reflects wonderfully off the Mother of Pearl creating a rainbow of color! The title of the box and the artist's signature have been painted along the bottom edge of the lid as well as on the back of the box. This box measures approximately 5 inches long by 4 inches wide by 1.25 inches deep.
