Russian Lacquer Box
Russian lacquer box, signed by Fedoskino artist Zaitseva. 3" x 2½" x 1½" high. The scene depicted on the cover is The Fox and the Crow . $23 from Nickolai, St. Petersburg, Russia, through Ebay, May, '01.
This is as detailed a presentation of the specifics of the The Fox and the Crow scene as I have witnessed. The bodies of both fox and crow are directed to the other. I have long waited to see fable scenes presented on Russian lacquer boxes, and here my hope is fulfilled.
