A Russian lady in a red gown with a white blouse sits by the river seemingly unaware of the gentleman arriving on a horse in the background, a Russian fairytale of love to begin. 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 rectangle box is 2 ¾” x 5” and weighs 3.65 ounces with some gentle wear. $39.99
