Darn it. We just found this beauty among our 'forgot-we-had-this' treasure and with just a few days till Mother's Day, it might be too late to gift to Mom. Still, it's so nice to give any time of the year.

This lovely Russian lacquered box is hand-painted with an especially beautiful Madonna and Child. The artwork is almost primitive... very simple and fine and unencumbered with excess. The mother figure is showing her son a book (it's a boy!) and he's looking at it with great interest. A very special connection. And yes, her turquoise colored cover-up and the boy's red hair and the green book all have a glowing aura to the paint.

The box is egg-shaped. Measures about 2 by 2 3/4 inches across the top with a height of 1 1/2 inches.

The inside is painted in the classic red that Russian boxes seem to favor. The inside lid is signed with the maker's name though we can't quite make it out...KAAYTA? But those are Russian characters. The box is also marked in Russian under the art. We know the first word is Madonna in Russian and the next two words are mostly likely 'And Child'.

Box is in excellent vintage condition.
