This exquisite portrait of a beautiful lady, was painted by artist Alimpiada Dokuchaeva of Fedoskino. She is a wife of well-known artist Yevgeniy Dokuchaev.
The portraits like this one were very popular at the beginning of the ninetieth century. At that time P.V. Lukutin factory produced a large quantity of lacquered boxes depicting young beautiful ladies.

The scene is framed with a gold line. Two parallel gold lines decorate the box's sides. The box is constructed from paper-mache.
