Russian Lacquer Miniature Painting on Papier Mache Box Kholui

This box, like the others listed on my site, were acquired as part of a large estate in the early 1990's. They have been in my safekeeping for the last 17 years and are now available for sale. This octagonal box measures approx. 4 5/8" x 3 3/8" and is about 1 3/8" tall. It is hinged-lidded. The lid is domed and is decorated allover up to the edges. It is octagonal. Expertly painted. Artist signed. There is some crazing of the surface (see closeup near the bottom edge) which is why the price is so low. Otherwise, because of the execution and size, this box would be at least 2-3 times higher in price. I am not sure of the legend it represents but it depicts a bearded man on horseback with a dog romping and a bird in the man's hand.
