Ivan has the fabled firebird in his grasp. The bird, who has been stealing apples from a tree, is a beautiful red color with fine gold detailing throughout. The box has two gold ornaments, one framing the drawing and the other around the side. It is well crafted and has a hinge at the top. The lid of the box does not go all the way down and there is abut an 1/8 inch gap between the top and bottom when closed. Signed with the name of the artist (Kutsunova), village and title. The price of the box has been reduced because of this slight defect. The firebird is connected with several different fairy tales, as well as being a symbol for happiness. And this cute little hand-painted box will surely make someone very happy!
