This little Mstera Russian lacquer box featuring the merchant Kalashnikov is a real beauty! This is part of my mother's estate—she was an avid collector, with dozens of these beautiful boxes, and this is one of her smaller ones. Unfortunately, my photos don't do this piece justice at all. What is not captured in my photos is the effect and depth of the gold and silver, and all the minute reflective details. There is an intricate gold and silver border running completely around the edge of the image on the top, consisting of what looks like stylistic leaves and flowers. The box itself is a classic Mstera work stylistically and quality-wise, with the village name (Mstera) signed along the lower right edge of the border, the name of the tale (the Merchant Kalashnikov) in the center, with the artist's name (Hucheva) in the lower left corner. A small but mighty piece!

Unsure of age.

No damage anywhere that I can see. See photos.

3" in diameter x 1 1/4" tall.

NOTE: As of January 27, 2013, the United States Postal Service significantly raised their rates again (up to 21% on some services!). I only add $1.00 to shipping costs to cover my packing materials. The rest is the USPS's fault!
