Soon it was brought to Fedoskino, Palekh, Kholui, and Mstera. The Russian lacquer boxes are primarily constructed of cardboard that is glued, pressed together, and cut to specific sizes. Once oven dried and cured, several coats of lacquer are applied inside and out and the boxes are cleaned and polished to a smooth finish.
The box is ready to be transformed into a small miracle reflecting the artist's reflection of a chosen fairy tale, song, legend, opera, or ballet. Since these stories are passed down generation to generation, each Russian lacquer box may represent the version of the tale as told to the artist. Artists will typically use strong magnifying glasses on these spots and very fine brushes made out of a squirrel's tail. Dimensions: Large piece 12" tall & 6" diameter. All payments are expected within 7 days after receipt of our invoice for domestic buyers and 12 days for international buyers.
