Rare Russian Lacquer Trinket Box - Bell Tower
Beautifully detailed black lacquer decorated with gold and red, featuring red lacquer inside. The steeple is removable, revealing the first trinket box. The bell cage lifts to reveal the second, and larger, trinket box. There is a depiction of Jesus on the lid of the larger trinket box, presumably holding a bible. There is some unknown script on the bible.
The bell that hangs beneath the steeple is signed and dated "1998". This is a unique piece. I have not found any others like it and only one similar.
There is no damage. The piece is in truly "like new" condition.Measures 6 inches tall and the base has a 3 inch diameter
