Vintage Russian Zhostovo Hand Painted Folk Art Lacquer Brooch

Vintage Russian Zhostovo Hand Painted Folk Art Lacquer Brooch

Product Information

This beautiful handmade, hand painted, lacquered, wooden brooch was painted in the Zhostovo decorative style of intricate and colorful
 
floral design, distinctive to the art of Zhostovo painting, going back many generations. The Zhostovo decorative style originated in the Russian
 
village of Zhostovo, in the Moscow region. It is one of the most respected centers of Russian folk art, their trinket boxes noted for bright designs
 
on a shining black lacquer background, and metal trays produced for hotel and household use. With the expanding tourist trade, smaller 
 
handcrafted items for souvenirs were needed, among them the handcrafted brooch. Russian trinket boxes are like miniature oil paintings from
 
some of Russia’s most highly talented artists, as it requires hours of work to paint in miniature. The production includes application of several
 
layers of paint and transparent lacquer, in between drying time, before the final polishing. The trinket box served as an heirloom to pass on to
 
younger family members, and was a way to pass down history and tradition, so the smaller brooch is a wonderful idea for gift giving to friends
 
and family upon the traveller's return home, to serve as a momento of Russian folk art! The gorgeous red cabbage roses, daisies, and other
 
floral, that decorate the brooch, are accented by lovely gold scrolling, against the black background. The brooch measures 2 3/8” length across 
 
x 1 5/8” wide x 3/8” high lying flat. It has a silvertone pin with roll over clasp, on the back. There are two marked areas on one side edge, and
 
two areas where the lacquer is worn off on the other side edge, only noticeable upon very close inspection, so this Vintage Russian Zhostovo
 
Hand Painted Floral Brooch is in great condition. Written on the back in gold lettering is: Handmade in Russia.  A silver foil gift box is included
 
with your purchase! (See the Russian Trinket Box with a similar design, in another listing.)

shipping for multiple purchases. Texas residents will be charged retail sales tax at check out. Buyer from Hawaii, Canada, the U.K., Europe, Japan, China,
