Main Product Image
Ivan and the princess race to safety on the magic horse, with the Grey Wolf keeping guard at their heels. By listening to the Wolf's wise advice, Ivan has won the magnificent steed, as well as the hand of the princess. A tiny castle emerges from the forest behind them. The scene has been rendered with incredible detail, and is accented with tiny strokes of golden paint, adding shimmer. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the artist's name (N. Ryabinina), village, and date of completion. There is no hinge, and the interior is orange lacquer. A thick border of gold scroll work adorns the sides. The box stands on four curved feet. An impressive fairy tale miniature.
