This Fedoskino lacquer box is another one of the collection just acquired. It has a mostly grey blue palette with a table and a vase of summer flowers. The box has the name Fedoskino, an artist name Mikhail Shelukhin and the number 680 along the bottom of the picture. The artist was born in 1971 and graduated from Fedoskino art school in 1992. It seems that this box was painted early in his career, possibly shortly after graduating while working at the Fedoskino factory. The number on the box and the Fedoskino emblem painted on the inside of the lid are the reasons for my assumption. The number is a pattern number. The inside is also marked Fedoskino and Pegokuno and a gold troika underneath. The bottom has four small felt cushions. Condition of the box is excellent, no problems noted.
Measurements are: 4 1/2" by 4 1/2" and 2" tall.
