This fabulous handcrafted Russian lacquer box depicts a city scene with a horse drawn carriage in front of a store entitled "LOMBARD". The scene is highlighted in gold paint creating reflections off the paint in the windows and lamp lights. This lacquer box is beautifully detailed with pedestrians, buildings and of course the horse drawn carriage and driver sitting and waiting for his riders. 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 pictures below represent different angles and lighting to show how the light reflects off the gold paint. This amazing box measures approximately 4 inches across by 3.25 inches wide and 1 inch tall. The artist’s signature and the title of the box are painted at the bottom of the lid and on the bottom of the box.
