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.

My wife and I visit Moscow often and know that one of the most important things to have is a reliable driver. We discovered Arthur's service by contacting him through his Internet web site. We found him, as a driver, to be extremely reliable, professional, always on time, honest and with safe and effective driving skills. As a person, we found him to be pleasant, friendly and helpful. Arthur has a good working knowledge of the English language, and can communicate very well. He also is very familiar with the city of Moscow and its surroundings, which is very important, as there are certain areas in the city and certain times of the day which are susceptible to terrible traffic jams. I highly recommend Arthur to anybody who visits Moscow and is in need of reliable and safe transportation. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions about Arthur or his services.

Sincerely yours,
