A lucky lady is surrounded by several potential admirers who look at her quite adoringly. In her hands she holds a lily, perhaps a gift from one of the determined suitors. She looks at us playfully as if to say, which should I choose? Although we can't tell her whom to pick, we can admire the gold inlay on the lid, sides, and bottom of this piece. This box is made of high quality papier mache with a red lacquer interior. It is signed with artist's name (R. Chibisova, year, village, and title. The piece is flush.
