This high quality box from Palekh artist V. Terentiev shows a man putting a large black shawl on the shoulders of the young lady. Two birds to the top left are also involved in a little courtship of their own and seem to echo the romance that is in the air. Very fine lines of gold and silver provide great definition to all the objects in the drawing. What is especially pretty, and which can't be seen in the photos, are the eyes of the couple where there is also glint of gold. The box has a silver and gold ornament with snowflakes at the top and sides. Enhancing the wintry effect is the bluish color that mixes in with the black lacquer near the bottom of the box, and around the drawing. The box is made out of papier mache, does not have a hinge and stands on three small round legs. It is signed with the name of the artist, village, and year.
