Russian Lacquer Box.
Round lacquer box with a beautiful girl appropriately labelled "Golden Hair." Beautifully painted with wonderful coloring and amazing detail, particularly noticeable in the hair.
My Russian speaking friend could read the label "Golden Hair," but couldn't quite make out the other writing, which is likely the town and painter's signature. The box is marked on the bottom, Made in USSR.
Excellent condition, with one tiny nick on the top rim which is painted over, so likely in the making, and one "no show" chip on the bottom.
3 7/8" diameter, 1" high.
