Gerda and Kay chat happily as they tend to their roses. The facing windows of their houses, where their friendship first bloomed are visible behing the pair. The open curtains and potted roses on the sills create a sense of welcome and comfort. Kay's rose is a ghostly white, a reminder of his fate to have his heart frozen by the Snow Queen, while Gerda's is a robust red, symbolizing her determination and perserverance in rescuing Kay. The scene is beautifully painted in gentle colors, with generous gold and silver accents adding detail and sparkle. This box is amde 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 a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. the flush base bears the phrase, "Made in Russia."
