Khokhloma Lacquer Boxes
Khokhloma (hoh-lo-MA) painting amazes you with its delicate grass pattern and festive coloring, which is based on a combination of scarlet cinnabar and flittering gold against the black lacquer background. This is a Khokhloma specific feature. Originally, artists used tin powder and lacquer to obtain such gold color. Now they use aluminium powder. The colors are mainly black, red and golden. Traditional khokhloma portrayals are juicy red berries or strawberries and blossoming branches.
Khokhloma is highly collectible in Russia. All of our khokhloma boxes have hinged lids and red painted interior finish. Some are velvet-lined when specified in item description and some are even signed by the artist.
