We are happy to invite you for already becoming a traditional annual "private show" of genuine Russian lacquer boxes by Black Lacquer Co-operative from the 5th till 10th of October 2006 in Minneapolis, MN, USA.

You will have a chance to find your own treasure or unique gift from approximately 250 unique boxes from Palekh, Fedoskino, Kholuy and Mstera (many not even listed on our website).

It will be an informal free private show with everybody highly welcomed from 1.30 till 8.00 pm. We will have as usual Russian music and a bit of Russian vodka... just a bit. You could bring your own boxes for free appraisal and authenticity qualification if you like. There will be a one hour free seminar (questions and answers mainly) given by Mr. Christensen as a knowledgeable long-term American collector and Co-operative's representative about Russian lacquer boxes on Saturday the 7th at 4pm.

We will have many different shapes (from broaches to complicated Persian 9-sided chests), sizes and colors; modern and old collectable boxes, new Russian icons and decorative wall plaques. There will be the full range of quality starting from rather simple (but still genuine) broaches through the gift quality boxes to masterpieces of most well-known top artists.
