Russian jewelry box hand painted in the unique Northern Dvina style. Northern Dvina [Severnaya Dvina] is a river in Northern Russia flowing into the Dvina Bay of the White Sea. The style of painting before you is generally called Lubok (or a hand-drawn Lubok). However, this is a particular type of it – a Norther Dvina type. A characteristic motif of the Northern Dvina Lubok painting is a flowering branch with large, tulip-like flowers. Predominant color of the pictures is red and the artists often use the uncolored background. The style of the Northern Dvina pictures is rooted in the regional tradition of manuscript illustration and in folk painting on wood. The box before you is not only a jewelry box. It is also a unique work of art. Treat yourself or your loved one to one of them, and it will be a gift to cherish for a lifetime. This box is 100% authentic. Fully hand made. Imported from Moscow, Russia.
