Kholui Russian Lacquer Box
This box portrays Poseidon fully adorned in his gold crown and ornamentation. The border is intricately detailed in its design on the lid. The sides of the box are fully decorated with the same border with large gold fish added into the design. As is common with Kholui lacquer boxes, this piece is not dated. However, since the Kholui school did not become truly established until the mid 20th century, we know this is a vintage piece rather than antique. The signature appears on the lower right between the painting and the border. The inside lacquer is a rich red color. There is no damage and the box looks new.
The measurements are 5" x 3.5" x 1.75.
