A honey haired enchantress sits before a stunning view of the city of Moscow. The beautiful sophisticated image of this woman in a private carriage brings to mind the famous 18th century portrait Unknown Woman by Ivan Kramskoy. The style of this beautiful portrait box, meanwhile, leans more toward the look of the Italian Renaissance, while tasteful golden accents well placed throughout provide that exquisite touch found in fine Russian lacquer art. Tasteful golden accents wink throughout, adding elegant sparkle. Graceful arcs of gold reminiscent of ornate gilded picture frames ring the scene. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (Dontsova), and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It rests on four round legs.--BOX1074
