THE ONE OF A KIND! MSTERA RUSSIAN-UKRAINIAN THEME-DESIGN GORGEOUS LACQUER BOX.
"Evening on the farm of the bee-keeper Rudy Panko" from the Nikolai Gogol short stories Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka. SIGNED BY THE "MSTERA" ARTIST - SHIBASHOV.
IT IS NOT A MINIATURE BOX! IT HAS A FULL SIZE! IT MEASURES 6" LONG x 4 DEEP x 1 1/2" TALL. THE YEAR OF ORIGIN IS 1970 (SAYS ON THE TAG).WHY IS IT EXTREMELY RARE? BECAUSE ITS A FIRST LACQUER BOX WE EVER HAD WHICH ACTUALLY HAS A OIL HAND-PAINTING AS ANY OF THE OIL ON CANVAS MASTERPIECES HAVE. ITS NOT TYPICAL FOR THE LACQUER BOXES.
THE ARTISTS USUALLY DONT USE THAT TECHNIQUE FOR THE LACQUER BOXES. BUT THIS ONE IS UNIQUE. YOU CAN SEE ALL DETAILED PAINTING BY OIL-HANDPAINTING ON THE TOP OF THE BOX. ITS AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, STUNNING ITEM!
This box has been gently used, no any cracks, only slight scratches on the bottom, and maybe other few on the box. It happens because it has been displayed by the collector. Very good condition for its vintage age. I t look unusual and awesome. Any flaws you may perceive, are a result of the reflection in the photos.Please take a moment to appreciate the artistic details!
