Russian filigree boxes were made by hand and not a machine. This elegant round box is an outstanding example of filigree design and craftsmanship as perfected during the days of Catherine the Great. The pattern is reminiscent of bobbin-lace, decorated throughout with tiny seed pearls and dipped in near pure (99.9%) silver. Hand-crafted in Kazakavo, near Nihzny Novgorod (formerly the city of Gorky). 4"x 1¼". Comes in its own (retro Soviet-style) custom-fitted box.
A beautiful compliment to our Petrograd silver filigree teaglass holder.
