The famed cossack Stenka Razin offers a plate of delicate cakes to his Persian bride, who refuses due to a combination of sea and homesicknesses. Stenka's crew glares at the queasy foreign woman, jealous that she has stolen their leader's affection, and quip that marriage has made him weak. The scene is nicely painted, with thoughtfully placed gold accents adding sparkle. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (N. V. Kuznetsov), and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of this piece is flush. There is a scuff on the bottom of the box, but this does not effect the beauty or integrity of the piece. --BOX1071
