Artist A. Romashina captures a chilly winter morning with her landscape of this river in ice. Anchoring the scene is a circle of inlaid mother of pearl radiating fiery iridescent color like prismatic ice crystals. To further enhance the mood, the box background color is not the typical black, but rather a marbled blue-green. Beautiful gold scroll works its way around the edge of the box, which was painted in Fedoskino and is dated 2001. On the bottom of the box you'll find a slight imperfection in the lacquer, a crack less than 1" in length. For this reason alone (as the box is otherwise a beautiful collector's item) it is heavily discounted, making it a great buy. Set in out on display, and no one will ever see the minor flaw. 4.75" x 3" x 1.5"
