Size: 5.5x9x2
Size (inches): 2.25x3.5x0.75
Price : $690 SOLD!


Alexander Chirkov is the talented Fedoskino artist who painted this beautiful box. In the foreground he has depicted the scarlet tulips growing in the flower-bed while in the background the St. Isaak's Cathedral (the main church in St. Petersburg) is painted.
The scene is painted in the realistic style using various tones of oils. Shining silver paint is used to paint the clouds in the sky, and to create brilliance of the tulips and the roof of the cathedral.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, and the title ("Scarlet Flowers").
