Forest Glade (Лесная поляна). The "dessin de paysage" focuses on the beauty of a setting sun in the forest. Delicate miniature oil painting on river mother-of-pearl. The piece simply shimmers due to the undulations of the shell. The photo does little justice to the piece in real life. It will definitely attract attention! Marked "Федоскино" (Fedoskino), 97 (for the date) and the initials (K.M.) of the artist. Materials used are oil paints, mother-of pearl, metallic powders, melchior setting and lacquer. Also a few hard-to-see white dots across the top. Gift boxed. 1¾" x 1½". 1 only, as shown.
