Beneath the orb and candle laden boughs of a Christmas tree, a spritely Nutcracker, part Napoleon and part Puck, grandly introduces himself to Clara from atop a hobby horse. Clara bows politely as she pats the horse's nose, her eyes wide with disbelief. O. Yastrebov's distinctive style combines child-like figures, softly gilded moonlight tones, and joyous sprinkling of glitter (some of them seen as specks of light in these photos) against the velvety black background create unforgettable fantasies. He is featured extensively in the recent book, "Russian Lacquer Miniatures, Palekh, Mstiora, Fedoskino, Kholui." This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name, village, and date of completion. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. It rests on four curved legs.
