The fine and detailed art of painting on papier-m ché boxes was originated in Russia in the late 1700’s. These boxes are made from pressboard, made into boxes, dried and then the real artwork begins. These hand painted boxes use egg tempera, 24 K gold and classic brushes made from a squirrel’s tail and of course, magnifying glasses to paint the intricate detail on the boxes. The pictures depict legends of the country, fairy tales, religious scenes as well as the arts. This box is a picture called “A Story for the Golden Fish” by Artist S.R. from the Palekh School showing the joy of fisherman with an excellent catch for the day. This is an exceptional piece without any wear and it truly a work of art. It is 5 ¼” x 2” x 1 ¼” and weighs 3.49 ounces. $99.99
