The box features a scene from the poem "General Toptigin", written by Nikolay Nekrasov in the mid-19th century.
It is a comic tale about a bear who takes a chaotic ride in a troika. Once a vagrant actor with a bear asks the coachman to take him to the appointed place. The coachman agrees. Driving past the tavern, the coachman and the vagrant actor decide to drop in to have a shot of vodka. The bear left in the troika roars, and the scared horses start galloping. The villagers and the inspector of the road station mistake the bear dressed in the general uniform riding in the troika for the general. Everything falls into place when the actor and the coachman catch up with the sledge...
The box is in the very good condition.
