This beautiful little lacquer box comes from the village of Palekh, where in the days prior to the revolution (1918) the resident artists were renowned for their Icon painting. Since Iconography was prohibited under the Communist rule, the artists turned to making miniature boxes, jewelry and panels. These pieces are painted using egg tempera, the medium used for Icons, and allows for clean bright hues and pin point details. This particular box depicts a scene from the Russian fairy tale entitled "The Tale of Tsar Saltan" and if you purchase this box I will send you the complete story with it. Also, please note that it is signed "A. Victorivia" and dated 1985. The dimensions are 1 1/4" in height, 2 1/4" in width, and 1 1/2" in depth. An exquisite piece in fine condition, it will become a special piece in someone's collection!
