Title: Troyka
Artist: Potekhin Ye.A.
Size: 13x9.5x2
Size (inches): 5x3.75x0.75
Price : $850 SOLD!


This box painted by E. Potekhin shows the traditional theme of a speeding troika. This tradition sprang from the very beginning of lacquer ware production in Russia when the first lacquer workshop was founded by Peter Korobov in the village of Danilkovo (now Fedoskino). At that time the theme of peasant everyday life was very popular among painters.
The scene is painted in various shades of green, blue and brown oils. Silver paint creates brilliance of the harness.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The box has a hinge from the top of the scene, and rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed by the artist.
