Here is the smallest miniature lacquer box that I have ever come across. Measuring just 1 1/4" in height, 1 1/4" in width, and 1" in depth, it is absolutely amazing how much detail there is to the painting! This box comes from the village of Palekh, where the artists use egg tempera rather than oils, to paint. The reason behind this is that prior to the Russian Revolution these artists were busy painting Icons for the churches, and once Communism took over they were forced to discontinue Iconography and began creating decorative pieces for the home and eventually for tourists. This particular box depicts village life, a popular motive done by many artists from this area; it is signed by the artist "B. Konoe" and "Palekh" and was done in 1994. In mint condition, it will be the "star" of any miniature collection!
