Title: Sunday
Artist: Belova Margarita
Size: 7x15x2.5
Size (inches): 2.75x6x1
Price : $1495 SOLD!


This interesting box is a creation of Margarita Belova from the village of Fedoskino. This artist has a reputation of one of the most popular contemporary Fedoskino artists; her works are readily acquired by collectors from different countries. Most of all she likes to paint portraits and romantic scenes.
This box is called "Sunday", and shows three girls and two lads dressed in the Russian festive peasant clothes, dancing and waving with kerchiefs. One of the lads is playing the harmonica! Silver metal leaf is used to detail their sarafans. One of the girls has miss one of the mitten. On the background we can see the village houses and small figures of other village people went out for a walk!
The box's exterior is covered with dark grey paint, and decorated with silver scan patterns (made of tiny shapes hand punched from silver metal sheets, and then glued to the box manually). The box's interior is traditionally red.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. It has a hinge from the left of the scene, and rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the artist's name, village of Fedoskino and the title at the bottom of the composition.
Similar composition was published in a catalog of independent artist's works of Fedoskino under the guidance of M.Shelukhin (#104).
Fine Box!
