Vintage Russian Lacquer Art Brooch
Russian art lacquer art developed from the art of icon painting which came to an end with the collapse of Imperial Russia. From then on the industry focused on the production of beautiful hand painted lacquer boxes and also on these iconic brooches. They have been very popular over the past fifty years and are usually signed by the artist. Usually the Russian signatures are difficult to dicipher.This one has a lovely spray of hand painted flowers on to the high gloss lacquered finish with a lightly hand painted gold scroll framing it. It is signed to the back with a simple C shaped pin. In excellent condition, and gift boxed by Vintageonline.
