Vintage Khokhloma Russian Folk Art Hand Painted Small Wooden Covered Bowl:
Golden Khokhloma is a bright phenomenon of Russian folk arts. The khokhloma handicraft became to be known as early as the XVII century in Nizhegorodsky region. It received the appellation of khokhloma art from one of the villages which grew to become a trading post to which the local craftsmen brought their wares for sale.
Traditionally khokhloma items were produced in the monasteries and were designed primarily for the Zhar's Court. When the highly-glazed pottery and metal ware was marketed, unusual painting of items from Semyonov guaranteed their popularity and sales.
The technology of producing items with khokhloma painting is the following: wood is preliminarily kept on the air within a year; then a turner makes items of different shapes; each item is covered by linseed oil, aluminum powder, then is painted and lacquered.
This beautiful little bowl was displayed in my china cabinet but has never been used (see labels on the bottom).
Measures: bottom DIA 2"; top DIA 3.5"; height with cover about 3.5".
Thank you for looking!
