The lacquer art of Palekh has been called "a small miracle", a label particularly fitting since this style of box painting originates in the same village that specialized in religious icon-painting for centuries, up until 1917 (the year of the Russian Revolution). The eyeglass case is made of metal and has several layers of high gloss clear lacquer coating on the outside and soft velvet liner on the inside to keep your glasses safe and scratch-free. Both pressure hinge in the back and the plastic trim around the edges will keep your eyeglass case closed tight and secure every time you use it. The case has enough room inside to store most types of eyeglasses or could be used as a jewelry box instead. What a beautiful and one-of-a-kind gift for anyone. Interior colors of the liners may vary.
Materials: metal box, tempera paint, gold leaf, clear lacquer, hinge, velvet liner.
