Product Description

This is a style of miniature painting pioneered in Mstera primarily by Yevgeniy Yurin. In the mid-30s he created an original style of decorative painting that came to be known as the "Yurin's ornament".  He focused on compositions themselves, painting a bouquet of flowers, fruits or berries set against a brown, black, green or blue grid and encircled on all sides with his ornaments of interlaced scrolls, starlets, spots, petals and leaflets. This style has been handed down to skilled artists in Mstera today such as Vladimir Kurnin who come to specialize in this unique style of painting floral compositions.The scene is set into an oval; the rest space of the lid is decorated with intricate floral patterns painted against the burgundy background. These patters are drawn in gold metal paints and highlighted with blue and red tempera paints. The box sparkles with the gold detailing.
More flower patterns can be found on the box's sides.

The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge has been fastened to the top of the composition, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, village and title. Approx. 4"x3.5"x 1.25".
