Khokhloma bowl (чашка). Decorated in the "kudrina, i.e., curls" style with gold, red, black, and green. Semenov Khokhloma Factory, circa 1968. (Семеновская фабрика "Хохломская Роспись"). 3" height by 7" diameter. In excellent condition (9 out of 10) with small mark on side.
The highly formal painting of the bowl is evident of an older master craftsperson. Since individual artistic accomplishments were not noted, one must go by the clues of decorative lines, color choices (simplicity of the green, especially inside the bowl) and overall design layout. One of the nicest bowls we've seen in a long time.
