Size (inches): 4.75x3.5x1.75
Price : $650 SOLD!


Alexey Valyalin from the village of Fedoskino is the artist who painted this adorable box. Since childhood, Valyalin has been fascinated with the sea. During his vacation at the Black Sea, he visited the Museum of Art in Feodosia (Crimea, Ukraine), and was greatly impressed by the paintings of the great Russian seascape painter, Ivan Aivazovsky. This occasion influenced his decision to become an artist and paint seascapes.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Blue lacquer mixed with silver powder is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The composition is framed with a gold line; two parallel gold lines decorate the box's sides. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and the village of Fedoskino.
