Very nice Russian lacquered papier-mâché box, painted in the village of Mstera, one of the four traditional centers of Russian miniature painting.

It is 5 3/4 inches long, 2 1/4 inch wide, and 1 7/8 inch tall. It is labeled "Troika," and has the name of the village Mstera, but no painter's signature. I am not able to date it, but it does not appear to be new.

The condition is very good. The hinge is a tiny bit loose but functions perfectly. There are no serious signs of wear but there are a few dents in the surface (visible in the photos). Since the paint is not disturbed, I assume that these were present on the surface of the box before it was painted.
