The magical pike offers to grant Emelya's every wish if the lad will spare his life. The rich colors of the scene seem to glow against the black lacquer. Emelya's dreamy expression hints at unusual wishes to come. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (E. Sedova), and village. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. The flush base bears a factory "Made in USSR" sticker. There is no date on the box, but we estimate that it was done in the mid 1980's. A bright traditional box that still looks quite good today.
