This lovely Russian Fedoskino Mother of Pearl lacquer box depicts a family of bears playing in a beautiful cool forest on a summer's morning. The lid is a whole shell of Mother of Pearl and is painted and creating the impression of sunlight filtering through the forest trees. 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 detail is wonderful and the light reflects off the Mother of Pearl in a rainbow of color - pictures have been taken at different angles and in different light to show how the mother of pearl reflects the light! Hand painted along the bottom of the lid is the style of painting - FEDOSKINO, as well as the title, MORNING IN THE PINE FOREST (written in Russian, of course). The artist's signature along with a stamp are on the bottom of the box and it measures approximately 4.75 inches long by 3.25 inches wide by 2.25 inches tall.
