THERE ARE FOUR MAJOR VILLAGES WHERE RUSSIAN LACQUER BOXES ARE PRODUCED: MYSTERA, KHOLUI, PALEKH, AND FEDOSKINO. OF THESE FOUR, FEDOSKINO ARE MOST PRIZED FOR THEIR NATURALISM/REALISM, HUMANISTIC STYLE, AND JEWEL-TONE COLORS. THE BOX ITSELF IS FIRST MADE BY A PAPIER MACHE PROCESS, THEN CURED AND LACQUERED.

AN ARTIST TAKES A TRADITIONAL SCENE FROM A FAIRY TALE OR A RELIGIOUS ICON, AND EXECUTES IT ON THE LID. THEY PAINT USING SABLE BRUSHES, SOME OF THEM HAVE ONLY ONE OR TWO HAIRS. OFTEN, SUCH AS THIS ONE, MOTHER-OF-PEARL HAS BEEN INCORPORATED INTO THE DESIGN. THE SUBJECT OF THIS BOX IS TAKEN FROM "TSAR SALTAN" AND IS SIGNED BY THE ARTIST.

THIS ONE TOOK ONE YEAR FOR ONE ARTIST TO DESIGN AND PAINT. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL WORK OF ART, JUST AS AN OIL PAINTING WOULD BE CONSIDERED. IT HAS A GOLD DIAPER PATTERN AROUND THE OUTSIDE AND THE INSIDE IS LACQUERED IN THE TRADITIONAL, FIRE-ENGINE RED.

THERE ARE 4 FEET ON THE BOTTOM. IT IS: 6 7/8" LONG X 5 1/4" WIDE X 2 1/2 HIGH AND COMES WITH IT'S OWN PRESENTATION BOX. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND ENJOY THE VIEW! The item "FEDOSKINO RUSSIAN LACQUER BOX Tsar Saltan" is in sale since Tuesday, June 19, 2018.
