This beautiful little Russian Lacquer Box has been in my possession since 1972 when purchased on vacation in the Soviet Union. The original paperwork is included with the box. The box opens on a hinge, in excellent working order. The artist has signed the box. Background Painting is black with a dark brown tree with snow in branches. Snow and clothing painted with mixed silver into the colors, even the brocade robe the lady wears has silver designs. The lovely little box is lacquer red inside and has gold border around bottom edge of box. This little box has been well loved, has minimal wear, with scratches on bottom, all paint is intact, as well as it's luminescence.

Please do not confuse this with "faked" boxes that have printed scenes laminated to a box, you can tell the difference by looking through a magnifier. the printed ones will show tiny little dots like you would see in a newspaper photo. The handpainted ones only show brushstrokes, usually with brushes that only have a few hairs. I believe this box is done in "The Fedoskino Tradition" which usually feature a technique using foils that make areas luminesce or look like mother of pearl. This one has areas of silver foil in the landscape and on her robe.

I love this precious box, and it is time to move on to a new home where it will be cherished as much as it has been in my possession. This box represents a trip to a foreign land where wonderful memories were made. The box will move on, but I will always have the memories.

Thank you for visiting my shop,
Annie

"repurposed, not forgotten..."

GUARANTEED AS LISTED OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
My items are vintage and have had previous owners. Because of the age of certain items, there may be visible wear and use and I will do my best to describe these to you. I will never sell an item in poor condition.

Shipping from United States

I try to absorb some of the shipping cost on items which are very costly to ship, so I usually end up paying some of the shipping costs out of my shop's "piggy bank". Doing this insures I may offer my items at reasonable prices without building in shipping costs.
I usually ship the same day I get your order, at the most it is two days. I insure every package I ship, with the exception, the item purchased is $10.00 or less. I take great care in making sure your purchase arrives safely and quickly.

Refunds

GUARANTEED AS LISTED OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
All of our pre-loved jewelry and vintage items are thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished. They may show some light wear, marks, blemishes or flaws appropriate to their age. Gemstones may have commercially acceptable inclusions. Refer to the photos for details.
All returns are shipped at buyer's expense.

Additional

I try to use all recycled and/or re-purposed boxes, baskets, papers, and fillers for all my shipping keeping our environment safe. Please remember to recycle what you receive from me in packaging materials too!
I thank you and the Earth thanks you....
