Two musicians with flower wreaths in their hair play together in this fine box by Palekh artist Vera Smirnova. Both the young man and woman look at the viewer sweetly and it is indeed hard to resist their charm. Glistening gold details abound in this drawing and their radiance cannot be captured by the camera. There is a lovely little ornament that decorates the side of the box, and another small one in the center of the bottom. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and does not have a hinge. Signed with the name of the artist, village and year.
