An elegant woman in a flowing imperial gown poses casually with a sly glance promising of secrets. Her fair skin glows in the autumn sun streaming through a nearby window. The rich green of the room seems less suited to the vibrant sitter, whose posture seems to ask to go outdoors. A spray of roses droops near her hand, a sharp contrast to the thick leaves and shimmering wheat, and an allusion to the young woman's reaction to a life as a proper lady. The scene is well painted in rich, vibrant tones.An understated mother of pearl inlay adds sparkle while maintaining a sense of sophistication. This papier mache box is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (A. Zimin), and village. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of this piece is flush. Enchanting.
