Soft blue and green accentuate the pale splendor of St. Petersburg. Rising from the banks of a shimmering river, it seems an alabaster fairy land of golden spires and monuments. Ships of all sizes traverse her waterways, from a tiny rowboat to a squat steamer and elegant high masted vessel. The scene is painted in a bold style, with tiny details creating a sense of realism. The pale greens continue in the golden borders, punctuating the elegant golden designs circling the lid and sides. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (Smirnov), and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It bears the Kholui insignia and the phrase, "Made in Russia" on its base. A dazzling cityscape.--BOX1083
