"The Tale about the Golden Fish", Lacquer Box, b10, Unique

This lacquer box is original and genuine work performed by the master artist Nicholai Kotov in the old traditions of Palech Art School, established in Russia at the end of Seventeenth century, developed in the Eighteenth and very famous in Russia in Nineteenth century. Gold leaf and black tempera are used in this work. The blank is prepared for 90 days: the necessary size and shape of the blank is cut first out of a big chunk of paper mache ( thin boards of paper glued and pressed against each other and then dried), then put in special oils, then dried again. The subject matter consists of several major scenes of a very popular and beloved by Russians story written by Alexander Pushkin "The Tale About Golden Fish". In order to judge the caliber of the painting (made by hand through the magnifying glass) just look at how realistically the faces are done! Superb and flawless museum quality work! Great for any collector. 11.5"L x 3.5"W x 2"H. Unique, only one crafted like this!
