This is a Three Horse Sleigh hand painted egg featuring the Russian Summer Palace in the back ground with the Troika in the foreground. The Troika is the famous carriage or sleigh pulled by three horses abreast and is practically a symbol of Russia. This egg has the Troika being pulled in front of the Russian Summer Palace a washed in sunny skies. The Troika is one of the most common subjects found on lacquer Russian art, such as this egg painting . Signed by the artist L.TSVPIN. The egg is traditionally finished with many coats of lacquer on the outside. The artist used fine brushes and a paint made of egg-based tempera. A filigree design is painted with paint made of gold leaf. Very Good Vintage condition. Dimensions: 5 inch tall 9 inches at the largest diameter. This is one in two part set of Russian Troika at the summer and winter palaces . I will sell them together for $350. 00.
