Title: At the pub
Artist: Potekhin Ye.
Size: 9x10x2
Size (inches): 3.5x4x0.75
Price : $1350 SOLD!


This box features a traditional scene for Fedoskino School of lacquer miniature painting. Peasants and craftsmen sit in the pub and drink wine trying to relax after a hard day. One of them flirts with the waitress who offers the friends another bottle of wine. The scenes like this one, depicting peasants and craftsmen, their daily life, feasts, and traditions were very popular during the Vishnyakov and Lukutin era.
For this work the artist has chosen rather dark tones creating an illusion that the box is old and the colors have grown faded in the course of time. The scene is set into an oval, and framed with the attractive gold pattern and beads painted in brown oils. Gold patterns can also be found decorating the box's upper and bottom parts.
The box's exterior imitates the dark rose marble (tiny black veins are scattered on the dark pink surface); the interior is traditionally red.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the composition, and the box sits flat. Signed with the artist's name (Potekhin Ye.)
