Product Description

This cute Kholui jewellery lacquer box from Russia is devoted to the marvellous world of birds.
Scarlet background in combination with the golden breasts of charming orioles creates very festive atmosphere. Golden drops on the wings of the birds impart them majestic refinement. The description of the spring in full swing on this splendid decorative lacquered box fills us with the feeling of extraordinary enthusiasm and taste of life. In any season this pair of orioles will remind us about the sun, spring and high spirit.
The jewellery lacquer box is handmade by the Kholui Association that specializes in producing painted boxes of papier-mache. This material is more lasting than the wood, which can crack because of time or moisture. Papier-mache is an art which has deep roots in the Russian history. Producing of every lacquer miniature item is a very long and labour-consuming process. The beautiful miniature painting which covers the boxes is very detailed and originates from the Russian icon painting. The main aspects in producing of the Russian miniatures are right preparation and blending of paints (all paints are handmade), several stages of lacquering and polishing, and of course the mastery of the Kholui artists. The principal topics of the Russian miniatures are the landscapes and architectual monuments of Russia, the plots and protagonists of Russian fairy tales, fables and legends.
