FEDOSKINO BOXES
Lacquer miniatures of Fedoskino are made with the help of multi-layer oil painting on the primed papier-mache surface with special lining. Most of the Fedoskino boxes have a black background on the outside and are covered inside with scarlet or bright-red lacquer. The theme of troika (the three horses) riding was very popular in 19th Century's Boxes. A troika rushing through the snow field and sled riding is a popular theme that has become an emblem of the Fedoskino craft. The "Troikas”, “Tea Parties" and "Women's Gatherings" were used as subjects for new , original compositions. Special attention was devoted to the subject in its integrity and its ornamental decor with the stress on traditional techniques: filigree, checker-work, circular and gold ornamentation. The highly attractive Trunks, panels, brooches and boxes of different form of size with miniature painting and gold ornament, their dazzling lacquer surface and the play of their rich colors are remarkable blend of usefulness and beauty.
