Large, beautiful hand-painted paper-mache Russian lacquer box from Kholui, 1984. Signed by the artist, with original box. Dimensions: 5 and 3/4 inches by 4 inch oval. Inscribed "Made in USSR" on base. Small gauge/chip in the black lacquer present on base of box, given its age please see final photo (invisible when displaying box).
Please note: Box does not open. I do not want to damage it, so have not forced it open. I suspect the original certificate is inside the box, as this is where my mother normally kept them.
