Artist: Aldoshkina Elena
Size: 9x11.5x4
Size (inches): 3.5x4.25x1.5
Price : $750 SOLD!


Elena Aldoshkina, well-known Fedoskino artist, has created this attractive box.
Elena has elaborated her own style of painting; her unique boxes can be recognized by a beautiful palette; by adherence to depiction of scenes from peasant life and by distinctively painted attractive characters with large kind eyes. This artist is very popular in the world of Fedoskino lacquer art and we are very proud to present each of her creations.
The box shows Snowmaiden staying among the winter trees and the bids. The scene is painted in the distinctive Aldoshkina's style. The palette includes various shades of blue and grey oils, and the details are enhanced with brilliant silver paint.
The scene is framed with a lustrous gold band; another gold band wraps around the box's sides. The box's exterior is covered with a black lacquer mixed with gold dust; the interior is traditionally red.
The box is made out of paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the artist's name and the village of Fedoskino at the button of the painting.
