Item No. 005858

Hand-painted eyeglass case box featuring a Mother of God Virgin of Kazan icon.

"Keep the Virgin Mary icon close to you."

Russia is long renowned for its famed miniature lacquer boxes decorated with icons, religious subjects, and famous fairytales. Here, artisans in Russia combine a "hand painted" decorative (in the Old Russian shaded enamel style) border with Crosses framing a decoupage Virgin of Kazan icon. Virgin of Kazan is one of the most beloved icons of the Virgin in Eastern Christianity. The Theotokos of Kazan is known for her “protection” today and throughout history.

The box has been specially constructed of a sturdy resin (with the look of a finely made lacquer box) and soft-lined to safely hold your eyeglasses. Perfect for eyeglasses or any other use you can think of.

Made in Russia.

Dimensions: approx. 6.5 x 2.5 x 1inches
