This box is based on "The Tale of Merchant Kalashnikov" in which the tsar's guard (Kiribeevich) falls in love with the wife of Kalashnikov, and ends in a duel and the death of Kiribeevich. Be that as it may, one can look at this box as simply a romantic scene between the bearded guard and a lovely young maiden. The gold accents on both people, and the crescent moon in the background glow against the wintry atmosphere. The base color of the box is black and the interior is red. The box is nicely crafted and has a hinge at the left. Signed with the name of the artist (V. Komov), village and title.
