Vintage Russian Zhostovo Hand Painted Folk Art Lacquer Trinket Box

Vintage Russian Zhostovo Hand Painted Folk Art Lacquer Trinket Box

Product Information

This beautiful handmade, hand painted, lacquered, wooden trinket box was painted in the Zhostovo decorative style of intricate and colorful
 
floral design, distinctive to the art of Zhostovo painting, going back many generations. The Zhostovo decorative style originated in the Russian
 
village of Zhostovo, in the Moscow region. It is one of the most respected centers of Russian folk art, the trinket boxes noted for bright designs
 
on a shining black lacquer background, and metal trays produced for hotel and household use.
 
Russian trinket boxes are like miniature oil paintings from some of Russia’s most highly talented artists, as it requires hours of work to paint in
 
miniature. The production includes application of several layers of paint and transparent lacquer, in between drying time, before the final polishing.
 
The trinket box served as an heirloom to pass on to younger family members, and was a way to pass down history and tradition.
 
The gorgeous red cabbage roses, daisies, and other floral, that decorate the lid of this wonderful trinket box, are accented by lovely gold scrolling,
 
against the black background. The inside of the box is painted red. The trinket box measures 4” long x 2 7/8” wide x 1 3/8” high. It has a few tiny
 
surface marks, as it was lovingly used, so it is in excellent condition! This vintage Russian folk art trinket box was made during the Soviet Era,
 
circa 1960s – 70s. The artist’s name  Кранидов  "Kranidov A. I.", the box name "Fantasy", "hand painted", and "made in USSR", are written in gold
 
Russian script on the bottom of the box. (Age and translation from the owner of the Soviet Era Etsy Shop, who is a European historian.)

someone special!  (Email me for additional photos.)
