An elf clad in blossoms and leaves gazes into the distance, holding a pipe full of his companion's bubbling potion. They sit atop morning glories as they partake of the mystery brew. Bubbles waft from the raised end of the pipe amid sparkles of gold, while tiny dandelion fluffs drift through the air. The scene is painted in bright colors against a black lacquer ground,creating a nice contrast.the scene is ringed by a thin gold border, and the sides are decorated with a more elaborate design of silver and gold.This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (I. Kotukhina), village, and date of completion. There is no hinge, and the interior is red lacquer. The flush base bears the phrase, "Made in Russia." An exquisite and whimsical piece that will be a great addition to your collection.--BOX1230
