An elegant face peers from the window of a troika bearing the imperial double headed eagle as the city of Moscow nestles into a soft covering of snow. Wooden churches and houses give way to the brick and stone of the Kremlin as the clouds break to cast a salmon glow. A strong sense of motion is created by the strong curves and swirls of the composition. Tiny gold and silver accents sparkle from the sled and are answered by the gleam of snow covered domes, hinting at the wealth of the city. An elaborate border of gold and silver rings the sides, and is punctuated by another imperial eagle at the front. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (A. Zhukov), village, and date of completion. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer.--BOX1058
