The box is signed by the artist and comes with the Certificate of Authenticity.

Look at how the snow is painted! Look at the winter sunset skies! Amazing effect from a silver inlay with shining lights making an incredible 3D effect! Artists from Fedoskino, the birthplace of Russian lacquer miniatures, use a more realistic style of painting than the other villages. They also use oil paints for their drawings instead of the egg-based temperas. Three to four layers of the oil paints, along with seven coats of lacquer, are applied to each box before it is completed. This layering brings out a radiant quality in the drawings and the colors seem to emanate from within.
