The Golden Fish is the name of this signed Russian box depicting a man with his arms outstretched and a golden fish seems about to jump into his arms. A lady sits across the stream watching. The fine and detailed art of painting on papier-m ché boxes was originated in Russia in the late 1700’s. This box is from the Palekh School and shows the intricate detail of colorful artwork on a black lacquer background. 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. This oval box is 4” x 2 ¾” x 1 ¼” and weighs 1.69 ounces. $39.99
