Khokhloma "Romanoff Double-Headed Eagle" Wall Plate
This Golden Khokhloma "Romanoff Double Headed Eagle" Wall Plateis made of the finest quality Russian Khokhloma lacquerware. It is handcrafted today in the same 300-year old tradition created by the early icon makers to give each piece the illusion of gold. The process includes six steps: (1) the linden wood is shaped; (2) painted with a clay primer and baked; (3) rubbed with oil and air-dried; (4) rolled in powdered aluminum and baked (years ago they used tin); (5) the artwork pattern is painted; (6) 3 coats of hot lacquer are applied, and any of the pattern left silver by the artist will turn to the beautiful golden color.
Delicately hand-painted, it isreminiscent of "Old Russia." An elegant accent piece for yourhome and a great addition to yourKhokhloma collection.
Dimension: 20" dia.
