This stunning hand crafted and hand painted Russian lacquer box is inlaid with Mother of Pearl depicting a golden sunset over snow covered cabins along the snowy banks of a wandering river. There are four individual scenes - one on each side of the box. 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 box is a jewelry box with a mirror on the inside of the lid and a burgundy, velvet lined two level interior - the top tray comes out and has a lid on it. (SEE CLOSE-UP PICTURES BELOW). This box is hand painted and the style of painting - FEDOSKINO - as well as the artist's signature, are written on the lid of the box as well as the bottom. This box measures approximately 4.1 inches by 4.1 inches by 3.5 inches deep.
