This stunning hand crafted FEDOSKINO Russian mother of pearl lacquer box depicts a city scene from old world Moscow. The scene depicts Russian Orthodox Churches (with their famous onion domes), homes, businesses and horse drawn carriages along the cobbled streets of what looks like old world Moscow. The mother of pearl in inlaid in the entire lid creating reflections and a rainbow of color (Please see close-up pictures below - pictures have been taken at different angles and in different lights to show the reflection of the mother of pearl more clearly.) 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 amazing box measures approximately 6 inches across by 4 inches wide and 1.25 inches deep. The artist’s signature, the style of painting (Fedoskino) and the title of the box are painted at the bottom of the lid and on the underside of the box.
