This interesting box painted by a talented Fedoskino artist Oleg Nechaev.It depicts several characters from the popular Russian fairy-tale "Frog Princess".

The scene is mostly painted in contrast oils-black, white and green.The artist masterfully used golden paint to richly highlighted the details of the characters.
The box's sides are decorated with so called "scan patterns" composed of tiny beads and romps hand punched from silver metal sheets and then painstakingly affixed by hand to the box.
