Rows and rows of old churches and buildings are seen on this lovely little box depicting the historic town of Suzdal. Painted by Kholui artist N. Elkina, the drawing is bright with fine details throughout. Your eyes seem to flit about as you look at one building, then another, and another. There are a couple roofs that have a light application of gold leaf, but nothing at all to overshadow the variety of colors on the structures elsewhere. The box is as high as it is wide, and sports an elaborate silver and gold ornament on the side. The box is made out of high quality papier mache, has a hinge and sits on four rounded legs. The interior is red. Signed with the name of the artist, village and title.
