This handsome Russian lacquer box measures 10" X 4 1/2" X 3 and is in very good condition. The paintings are very detailed and outstanding. The antique dealer I bought it from is well versed on research and authentication and said this box is entitled The Tale (or Song) of Igor's Campaign and comes from Palekh, a little town 360 kilometers to the east of Moscow. The box is in three sections and also features a little drawer under the center section. I regret that due to my lack of knowledge on these boxes, I have no clue to its age.The antique dealer had a print-out on Palekh history and artists, but was unable to date this for me, either. This will be carefully packed and insured. The item "Big Russian Lacquer Box Palekh Jewelry Chest Tale (Song) of Igor's Campaign" is in sale since Sunday, June 17, 2018. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Cultures & Ethnicities\Russian".
