Title: Cinderella
Artist: The Vlasovs- Svetlana and Eugeniy
Size: 9.5x14x4
Size (inches): 3.75x5.5x1.5
Price: $1150 $950

This box was painted by a family team of Svetlana and Yevgeniy Vlasovs.
Here the artists have chosen to depict a scene from the timeless fairy tale of Cinderella, or Zolushka (it is the Russian version of the tale) tells about the poor and hard working girl who is rewarded in the end of the story for her kind heart and love to labour. The handsome Prince proposes marriage to her, and she becomes the Princess.
The composition is originally designed. In the center there is the scene that features Cinderella doing her daily chores.
The artists have used a variety of paints to create a believable world on the box. Each element of the composition is thoroughly detailed with gold paints. The box's exterior is decorated with intricate and decorative gold filigree with aluminum accents.
On the interior of the lid the artists have added a beautiful pattern of golden filigree which surrounds an inscription. The inscription lists the materials used, the authors' names, the title for the piece, the village name of Kholuy and the year of 2015.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while dark red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition and rests on four small legs.
