THIS MAGNIFICENT ONE-OF-A-KIND RUSSIAN LACQUER BOX IS ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION!!! I BEGAN COLLECTING IN THE MID-1980'S, WHEN LUCY MAXYM BROUGHT THE FIRST OF THEM TO THE UNITED STATES FROM THE USSR. AT THAT TIME, SHE WAS THE EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTOR OF THESE PRIZED BOXES HERE. I FIRST DISCOVERED THEM AT A GALLERY IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, AND WAS HOOKED ON THE GORGEOUS MINIATURE PAINTING TECHNIQUE. THIS ROUND "LANDSCAPE WITH BRIDGE" BOX WAS CREATED IN 1987 BY THE WORLD RENOWNED MINIATURE ARTIST, SERGEY KOZLOV, FROM THE RUSSIAN VILLAGE OF FEDOSKINO. THIS EXTRAORDINARY BOX WAS SELECTED FOR EXHIBIT AT THE MOSCOW ART INSTITUTE; MANY OF KOZLOV'S WORKS RECEIVE SUCH RECOGNITION IN MUSEUMS THERE. HERE HIS DEPICTION OF A NATURAL SCENE IS MORE THAN JUST A LANDSCAPE. KOZLOV IS KNOWN FOR THIS STYLE OF PAINTING, WHEREBY GOLD LEAF AND THIN SLICES OF MOTHER-OF-PEARL ARE ADHERED TO THE BOX LID, AND TRANSLUCENT PAINT IS APPLIED OVER THAT. WHEN THE LIGHT HITS IT, THE PAINTING HAS FIRE AND GLOWS. WHILE I HAVE TRIED TO CAPTURE HIS AMAZING WORK IN PICTURES, A COLLECTOR KNOWS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO APPRECIATE THIS WORK IS UNDER A MAGNIFYING GLASS, AS THEY WERE ORIGINALLY PAINTED.

THE BOX WILL COME WITH COPIES OF THE ORIGINAL PAPERWORK AND THE ORIGINAL PADDED STORAGE BOX. IT'S IN MINT CONDITION.
