Fedoskino papier-maché lacquer miniatures are known since 1796, first as snuffboxes, later as jewelry boxes and brooches. Most frequently the elegant, subtle oil paintings depict important historic events, portraits, landscapes.

These brooches are painted in oils on papier mache, because papier-maché does not absorb paint in centuries and, under several layers of clear lacquer, the colors will remain bright and vivid for years and years to come.

It was extremely difficult to make a decent photograph of this lacquered brooch. We did the best we could. All the white spots on the image are not the imperfections of the brooch, but the reflection of a high-gloss lacquer.

We are glad and proud to present you with these unique masterpieces. Each one of them is handmade and painted exclusively by hand.

Signed by the artist.
Comes with the Certificate of Authenticity.
