This beautiful 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 inlaid with Mother of Pearl and is painted 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! The style of painting - FEDOSKINO, as well as the title, MORNING IN THE PINE FOREST (written in Russian, of course), the artist's signature are painted on the bottom of the lid of the box as well as on the bottom. This box measures just over 5.75 inches long by 3.5 inches wide by just under 1.25 inches tall.
