Lacquerware has been produced in Russia since 1721, and often portrays fairy tales or folk scenes.  It is hand-painted and covered with as many as 10 coats of lacquer, then polished to a brilliant shine.  This box was a gift to Ronald Reagan from Yuri Dubinin, the ambassador of the Soviet Union in 1987. Photo: National Archives, Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum
