The Frog Princess Russian Lacquer Papier Mache Box

This wonderful box has a hinged lid and is made out of papier mache. It is entirely handpainted. The frog, pants, and patch of earth Ivan is sitting on are foiled giving the bright green areas a wonderful "pearlescence". As you will see in the photos, the box is artist signed. I am not 100% sure, but think this is from the Fedoskino area (there are 4 towns and styles that help identify the origins of Russian boxes). This one is dated from 1992 and is only one of a large collection we purchased around 1994/95 from an avid collector. The box measures approx. 2 1/2" x 2 3/4" x 1 3/4" high. It is in excellent condition without any damages.
