Decorative Painted Box "Veliky Ustyug". A painting of the Troitse-Gledensky Monastery (Троице-Гледенский монастырь) founded in the 12th century. The architectural ensemble of the monastery originates from 17th and 18th centuries. It is located at the confluence of the Sukhona and the Yug Rivers, close to the town of Veliky Ustyug.
The painting is on a hinged pine box covered with celluloid to resemble black marble. The overall effect is quite interesting. Makes a genuinely unique gift! 5¼" square x 1¾. 1 only, as shown.
