The Tsar thinks he has found the woman of his dreams in this 1978 box by Fedoskino artist L. Mederova. Ivan and the Tsar Maiden stand to the left, next to the very cute Humpbacked Pony with his rabbit-like ears. The work has a lovely traditional look to it, and made using the centuries old techniques of Fedoskino art. The colors on all the outfits are very eye catching and glow brilliantly amid the jet black background. All faces are expertly drawn and each hint at the character of the person. The box is made out of high quality papier mache, has a hinge at the top, and sits on four round legs. The interior is traditional red. It is signed with the name of the artist, village and year. Great condition throughout and very lovely box from the Soviet era.
