This gorgeous lacquer box is hand crafted and hand painted in the style of Austrian painter, Gustav Klimt. The box is colorfully painted with one of Klimt's most famous paintings - THE KISS. On the underside of the box is written Gustav Klimt's name, the title - THE KISS - in Russian, and the artist's name also in Russian. 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. In the layers of this box is a layer of metallic paint which highlights the flowers and leaves causing the light to reflect off the box! Pictures have been taken at different angles in an attempt to avoid reflection and shadow. (SEE PICTURES BELOW). This box measures just under 4 inches long by just over 3 inches wide by 1.25 inches deep.
