Birch Box with Vignettes. A hand made detailed box from Veliky Ustyug (Великий Устюг), a town in the Vologda Oblast. Intricate birch lacework decorates the top and sides. Colorful painted images are inside cartouches (oval frames) which depict the Sirin (Сирин), a mythological Russian creature with the head and chest of a beautiful woman and the body of a bird, a gryphon (or griffin), another legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion, the head and wings of an eagle and an eagle's talons as its front feet and a lion. The bottom of the box has a detailed typewritten label in Russian describing the provenance.  Condition is very good, some wear and tear. A nice example of the town's handicrafts. 6¼"x4¼"x3½".  1 only.
