Russian jewelry box hand painted in the unique Fedoskino style. Fedoskino work is instantly recognizable and is characterized by dimensional depictions where figures are naturally proportioned, and perspective is generally not inverted. Famous Fedoskino glow is attained with the help of very thinly diluted and therefore transparent glazes that hit paint with bold colors to provide highlights and details. Before polishing to a brilliant gloss the painting is covered with three layers of light lacquer. Altogether some twelve layers are involved. The item before you is not just a jewelry box but 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. Dimensions: 7.7x6x2 inches (19.5x15.5x5 cm). Imported from Moscow, Russia.
