A trio of lovely sisters spin more than wool in this traditional scene from, "The Tale of Tsar Saltan." Each weaves a tale of what she would do to make the Tsar happy, were they to wed. Unbeknownst to the sisters, the Tsar happened by as they were talking, and, intrigued by the conversation, has been listening beneath their window. The scene is sensitively painted in sparkling autumnal tones with shimmering foil inlay below. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the artist's initials (L.As.), village, and date of completion. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of this piece is flush.
