Modern Kholui lacquered miniatures are distinguished by the realistic images which are achieved by the many stages of hand-painting, and the special polish used. This little box, showing a panoramic view of St Petersburg with griffons, integrates the skill, talent and original style of the artist. The colors are muted and restrained, lending the piece additional elegance and grace.
Lacquer boxes are created by hand using time-honored techniques of Russian master craftsmen. Items might slightly differ from the sample in painting details and shape.
