The merchant's daughter and the handsome prince who was trapped in the body of a monster smile fondly at each other as they hold a vase containing the scarlet flower which led to their meeting. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the artist's name, village, and date of completion. There is no hinge, and the interior is red lacquer. The piece was done by Palekh artist I. Kotukhina, one of our favorite artists from Palekh because of her refined work. As is often the case, the fine detailed gold lines in this one don't show up well in the monitor image and look much better in person. --BOX1459
