Palekh Lacquer Boxes

The painting of Palekh Lacquer Boxes began in 1923 in the village of Palekh, in the district of Ivanovo Oblast. The technology of developing a finished painting or box was taken from the lacquer masters of handicraft of Fedoskino. The Palekh miniatures were reminiscent of characters of real life and works, fairy tales, and songs. Painted with bright colors and underlayment of gold and silver distinguished these artists, representing many of the iconic styles of earlier paintings.

Our journey took us to the village of PALEKH, which is probably the most recognizable name in Russian Lacquer Boxes. The village of Palekh specialized in icon-painting for centuries until the 1917 Russian revolution.

The beautiful fine lines of gold leaf that are applied are polished to a glow by a wolf's tooth. The mystery and soul of the Russian people are portrayed in the story-telling images of the PALEKH Boxes. We are equally proud to be able to offer these wonderful pieces of art, again, personally selected and AFFORDABLE prices due to our DIRECT IMPORTING to you at our Gallery now.

We have available a large selection of Palekh miniature boxes as well as special commissions. Each Box comes with a certificate of authenticity. Please inquire at L.P. Cline Gallery.
