    I went to the charity shops today and found this- a Russian Lacquer box!
    This is the second such example I've found in these few years of collecting life and a really nice example of one too. It's also signed in the left hand corner but since I don't speak or read Russian I don't know what it means. It's got a lovely aged glow (or patina?...) to it and depicts a wintry horse sleighing scene, so it's doubtlessly Russian!
    Inside the box, which is actually kind of shallow is a deep bright red shade, I was originally keeping an eye out for a box that would be suitable for keeping bottles of essential oils in but this, though lovely is WAAAY too shallow- I took it anyway because of how small and sweet it is and it'll be fine for keeping rings and stuff in.
    Cost- €5 ($5.95/£4.46)

      Awesome Russian lacquer box Lauren, such a beautiful winter scene - the trio of horses pulling the sled are in such spirited lifelike poses, I love them!

      a russian winter troika box , not cholij school and not palekh school and not kholui school , nice but late vintage

      strange this could be the famous fedoskino scene , but it is not from the fedoskino school

      i might miss something i am a nitwit but the signature means i think fedoskino troika, but it aint

      There's a long Russian tradition for making decorative boxes in the villages during the winter and selling them on the markets in summer. I once made a post about one in my collection.

      Thank you Golgatha- I think I've found this snippet of information out before, I guessed this was probably a souvenir piece alright
