This festive box is a specimen of traditional Fedoskino artistry. It features the lad playing the accordion and amusing two pretty girls and dancing lad. In old times the lad who could play the accordion was the most popular young man in the Russian village. Girls dreamt to have a date with him, lads respected him. Singing and dancing to the accompaniment of accordion was the only available amusement then. The scenes like this one, depicting peasants and craftsmen, their daily life, feasts, and traditions were very popular during the Vishnyakov and Lukutin era. The original comosition was painted by a well-known Fedoskino Master Boris Shavirin.
This version of the composition was painted by a talented Fedoskino artist Olga Zayakina.
The scene is framed with a floral golden ornament; more complex golden floral ornamentation wraps around the box's sides.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged to the left of the composition, and the box rests flat. Signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino and the year of 2019.
