Brand new in custom-fitted box with COA. Great for frog collectors or as a starter box for lacquer box collectors. 2" diameter x 1" height. 1 only.

Mstera, or, more correctly, Mstyora (Мстёра) miniatures differ those from Palekh and Kholui, though, on first glance, seem similar. Mstera painters prefer a lighter background, commonly light blue or other pastel shades. An old village, Mstera is located in the center of the Vladimir-Suzdal province on two rivers - the Mstiorka and the Klyazma. Prior to 1917, the area was known as Bogoyavlenskaya Sloboda. The landscape of the village is reflected in the fields and foliage of many Mstera boxes.
