A young couple has gathered some apples and enjoys this moment together. The maiden is wearing a traditional Russian headdress (kokoshnik), while the young man has some beautifully coiffed wavy hair, detailed with fine strokes of gold. The main composition is painted on a section that has been raised just slightly above the surface of the rest of the box, which is decorated with more apples and leaves. The sides of the box have a expertly painted gold ornament. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and sits on four small legs. It has a hinge at the top. Signed with the name of the artist, village and year.
