This charming small box has been painted by talented Fedoskino artist Marina Rogatova. Each of her work is an original artist's creation, and this one isn't exception. The box features the pond covered with water lilies. In the foreground there are several fish swimming in the pond, while in the background there is a fisherman's boat and bushy banks. The painting is extended on the lid's sides. The scene is painted over aluminum powder. Mother-of-pearl shines through the leaves of water lilies. The sides of the box's body are decorated with intricate gold patterns. The bottom part of the lid's sides is adorned with a wide gold band. The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and dark red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the name of the artist on the lid's interior.
