On this unique box the snow on the roof and the ground is raised. The doorway and windows have gold foil applique which creates the effect of great light and warmth within the small cottage. And the foil work is also in the dress of the yuletide visitors, which reflects the light streaming forth. This box is perfect for jewelry as it is deeper than most. The sides and bottom are painted with the blue/black marble pattern popular in Fedoskino. Signed by Kisilev, and dated 2000, Fedoskino. It is 2 1/2 inches high and 5 1/2 long, and 4" wide. While the execution is superb, the lacquer has begun to craze on top, bottom, and sides. For this reason we have reduced the price. But eh, time will catch up with us all.
