Gentle Friends, you may, or may not, know I collect Russian Lacquer Boxes. These wonderful works of art are IMHO just spectacular!! I received a "new" one I acquired from a dealer online today and there is an inscription inside the lid. Or at least I think it's an inscription. Usually, they are just lacquered red without much else... sometimes the name of one of the small villages it was made in or the artist may write on the inside of lid but that's unusual. This inscription is actually engraved and then the letters are gilded. Here's a snap ...
Now, my question is about a translation ... I do not read Russian and think there might be someone out there that could read this and let me know what this says.... thanks!!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
