Main Product Image
The male passenger of an elaborately decorated troika wrings his hands nervously as a tiny dog rushes towards the horses' hooves, barking. Although the female passenger tries to reassure her companion that all will be well, the horses have already been startled, and leap and rear at the commotion. The driver seems merely annoyed, and remains calm and composed behind the reins. The scene is well painted in pale frosty colors, with a nice amount of detail. The easily readable postures and expressions of the figures turn the often seen folk scene into a lively story. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (Golovnev), and village. There is no hinge, and the interior is red lacquer. It rests on four round feet and bears the Kholui insignia and the phrase, "Made in Russia" on its base. An enchanting scene.--BOX1196
