Product Info

This beautiful lacquered box depicts a Christmas scene in intricate detail. Morozka, the Russian Santa Claus, has left a chest of riches for a lucky young woman. This hinged lacquered box is a one-of-a-kind by artist Y.V. Skorosub. Made in Palekh, a village long known for its miniature paintings.

Lacquerware first entered Russia in the 18th century, where it developed its own distinctive style. Starting with papier-mache, a smoother and more stable material than wood, crafts workers assemble the box and apply the red and black lacquer base coats. Next, lacquer artists direct their years of skill and ample patience to the many small and intricate sections of the drawings. This often requires a strong magnifying glass and brushes as fine as a single hair. When finished, the work of art is ready for generations of enjoyment!
