Russian Legend Kholui Papier Mache Box St. George w/Dragon/Monster

This exquisitely rendered scene on a large oval box depicts a man on horseback confronting a monster. It might be from St. George Slaying the Dragon but I am not sure if that is the tale it is depicting.

This large oval box with beautiful gilt border decoration measures approx. 5" x 4" x 1" high. There is some surface crazing of the top lacquer layer. Price was $395.00 before crazing appeared.

The boxes you see on my site were part of a large private collection I acquired several years ago and have decided to sell off now. We will consider reasonable offers.

White specks are dust.
