This striking example of Russian lacquerware stands 4 inches high by 3.75 inches across and 2.25 inches deep. The Urals region of Russia is rich in gemstones, and many legends abound as to the origin of these treasures. One such story, "The Stone Flower" is depicted on this box. The artistry on this box is fantastic--it will transport you to another world. However, with age, a small crack has developed in the lacquer on one broad side of the house, and thus we have reduced the cost, making it an excellent find for the art connoisseur not overly concerned about small flaws in the lacquer.
