Russian Lacquer Boxes

Russian Lacquer Boxes

Here is the picture of Russian jewelry boxes with lacquer miniature painting which I made at Vernisazh craft market (Art City).

The sizes, shapes and quality of these boxes could be different. These masterpices were hand made by proffesional artists which trained in miniature painting. These boxes, of course, are more expencive, then the simple works by students, and the avarage price (depends on details, size and level of the master) could be about $50-$150 per each.

The tradition of miniature painting was brought to Russia from the West back in the 17th century. From the dawn of the 19th century Russians started producing lacquered boxes painted in their own styles. The box before you is not only a jewelry box. It is also a unique work of art.

Arthur is the best! My trip to Moscow on business would have been a very dull experience had it not been for finding Arthur excellent service through the internet. I feel extremely lucky to have come across Arthur as he brought the best aspects of Moscow to life for me by giving me so much history and insight. To have someone who is so knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient to show you around a stunning city like Moscow is fantastic experience. To cap all his talents, he is also an accomplished photographer and he e-mailed me wonderful photos of our trip. I will use Arthur whenever I go back Moscow to organise every aspect of my trip and I have already recommended him to a number of people in the UK and USA. I highly recommend him to you.
