September 2017 Auction Ends Thursday, September 28th, 5pm Pacific
Russian box from the personal collection of President Ronald and Nancy Reagan, owned and used by them during their Presidential years at the Family Residence in the White House and then at their Bel Air, California home. Beautiful red lacquered box features a scene of Rus', a group of Varangian warriors who settled Russia in the 9th century. Hinged top opens to reveal a red lacquered interior. The box was likely obtained during the Reagans historic trip to Russia during the 1988 Moscow Summit. Upon leaving the White House, the Reagans marked their possessions with a green sticker to designate which of their belongings had been displayed with them during their Presidential years; this box has this round green sticker on its underside. Gilt lettering in Russian appears at the bottom of the box's top, and ''Made in USSR'' appears on the underside. Box was originally sold at Christie's in New York, and has Christie's sticker. Measures 3.25'' x 4.75''. Near fine condition.
