A group of country folk spend their time just outside the village, picking both flowers and berries. The lad, perhaps trying to impress his sweetheart, holds out a lovely bouquet for her. Both a church and houses can be seen behind them. The box is very well done and stands handsomely above the surface of the table, like a short goblet. There is a modest border just below the drawing, and a more elaborate one on the bottom half of the box. It is made out of high quality papier mache, does not have a hinge and is signed with the name of the village and title. The artist did not put his name, but it looks very much like the style of V. Blinov, and we believe he indeed did do it. Blinov's work is featured in several books, including "Russian Lacquer Miniatures, Palekh, Mstiora, Fedoskino, Kholui".
