This Russian handcrafted lacquer box features St. Basil’s Cathedral, one of the top 10 wonders of the world and is inlaid with Mother of Pearl. The Mother of Pearl is inlaid into the papier-mache 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. This beautifully detailed box is hand painted and signed by the artist both on the lid and on the back of the box. The colors are fabulous and the light reflects wonderfully off the Mother of Pearl creating a rainbow of color! The box, of course, features the famous “Onion Domes” which St. Basil’s Cathedral is famous for. This box measures approximately 5.1 inches by 4 inches by 1.25 inches.
