Vintage Black Lacquered Russian Box-"A Ritual Kiss"

Seaside Art Gallery


A lovely vintage black Russian box painted by the Russian Collection, artist V. Artemov, circa 1995. The Fedoskino Style miniature interior scene is one of opulence with a very richly dressed couple. Trimmed with beautiful gilt floral bordering. The interior with hinged lid is solid bright red, creating a rich quality item. This piece measures 3” l x 4 3/4” w x 1 3/4” d and is in very good condition. Made in Russia signed on bottom.

FYI: The art of lacquered miniatures is several millennia old, arriving in Russia during the 18 Century. Since then Russian lacquered articles have won a place for themselves in world culture. The miniature works of Fedoskino artists are in private collections and Museums around the World.
