An antique Imperial Russian lacquer papier mache box/ tea caddy, by a Vishniakov factory, marked with a factory mark under the lid on silver interior background, I could not get a good pick of the mark, but it is clearly readable in life, has double headed Imperial eagle seal and Royal Crown, as well as award medals from Emperor Alexander the Third, circa 1880. The tea caddy is barrel shaped, with black lacquer exterior. The lid is decorated by hand painted scene of a Russian troika sled. There is a sled driver and two peasant passengers wearing traditional winter folk attire. Painted over a leaf of silver with enamel paints. Good quality work, great attention to detail.

The box has some condition issues. The top lid is damaged, with the painted panel being separated. Extensive chipping to the rim of the bottom section. The box is in need of restoration.

The painted panel by itself is in vary good shape and can be framed separately. Still fully original piece of 19th century Russian lacquer. Size diameter 4 3/4" or 12.5 cm, height 4" or 10 cm. This box comes as a part of large private collection of Imperial Russian and Soviet lacquer which is being listed concurrently.
