This oval shape box is entitled "The Snowstorm" and shows a young woman on her way to the well. She seems to slip, but fortunately a gallant young troika driver, who is passing by at just the same time, catches her in his arms. The pastel colored drawing on top of a traditional black lacquer box is painted well for the price and is as refreshing as the snowstorm. We have several of these boxes, done by the same artist, and all are very similar. The box is well constructed and has a hinge at the top. It is signed on the bottom with the name of the village, title and artist's initials (N.M.).
