|Very old Russian painted box. May have been used for various purposes. Intriguing colorful decoration. Many areas of loss but a very unique piece of Russian folk ware. Very interesting lock mechanism unique to these Russian boxes. No maker's mark, but these boxes were made in the villages around Velikij Ustug circa 1870-1905. Measures 16 1/2 X 12 X 9 inches.|
