Title: Falconer
Artist: Shavirin Boris
Size: 15x14x4
Size (inches): 6x5.5x1.75
Price : $495 SOLD!


Boris Shavirin from the village of Fedoskino painted this magnificent box featuring a hunting scene. Falconer is a post in the household of Grand Princess. Falconers had to supply game to the Tsar's court and got some benefits therefore.
The box is a gorgeous piece of Fedoskino realism. Shavirin could perfectly reproduce intensity of movement and capture animal nature of the steed.
The costume of a falconer reflect the fashion at the times of Ivan the Terrible (the 16th century).
The oval scene is framed with very beautiful filigree patterns. The same patterns wrap around the box's sides. The edges of the lid are also decorated with original gold ornamentation.
Black lacquer covers the exterior of the box. The box's interior is traditionally red.
The elegantly shaped box is made out of pressed paper. It has a hinge from the top of the composition and rests on a flat bottom. The box is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino and 2009.
