Palekh Style Painting. Artist: Shamarov.
The small town of “Palekh” is located about 360 kilometers East from Moscow and it is famous for its unique heritage as the origin of Palekh painting. This style of box also has a simple one-color background (usually red inside and black outside) which provides the most contrast with gold leaf accents. In addition to the extraordinary painting, the boxes have several layers (usually 4 to 5) of high gloss clear lacquer coating. The Palekh style is truly unique due to the extraordinary workmanship and attention to detail that these Russian artisans possess and put into each box. Palekh lacquer boxes are famous worldwide as a result of this workmanship. Today, the Palekh lacquer boxes remain in a high-demand both within Russia and around the world and many artists work full time to produce these famous lacquer boxes.
Our boxes are transferred to new owners with an original Certificate of Authenticity that guarantees the origin, style, authenticity, and names the artist.
This beautiful Palekh lacquer box was handmade and hand painted by the artist Shamarov. The box features a scene of famous Russian folk tale of Twelve Months, where each month of the calendar year was illustrated as a man. The twelve months of the year were twelve brothers who once helped an orphan girl.
This box is 3.25"L x 2.5"W x 0.75"H
