World War I: Russian folk or kustar art carved wood box

Lot 0126 Details

Description
The rectangular wood box with hinged lid painted with a soldier standing with his rifle, reserved within an applied bronze plate chased with cannons in a forest, the metal on the sides of the lid with wagon wheels. Apparently unmarked and unsigned. With lock, the key lacking. 3 1/2 x 13 x 4 3/4 in. (8.2 x 33.5 x 11.7 cm)

This Jasper52 auction is curated in partnership with John Atzbach, a leading authority in the field of Russian works of art made in and representing the tastes of the late Imperial era (late 17th century to the 1917 Revolution).

He was introduced to the subject at the age of 9, when a neighbor, recognizing his interest, allowed him to examine her collection of Russian enamels. He was immediately intrigued and spent the next several years learning all that he could about Russian silver and enamels, honing his knowledge before he began collecting them himself, fulfilling a childhood dream.

With a lifetime of knowledge in Russian decorative arts, John Atzbach is regularly consulted by collectors, dealers, appraisers, and auction house representatives from around the world. He has been directly involved in the formation of some of the world's finest collections of Russian enamels, Russian porcelains, and Faberge. He greatly enjoys his work and feels very fortunate that his childhood interest could evolve into a lifelong passion that continues to engage him every day.
