An incredibly detailed illustration of a fairy tale of a king, his court, and the soldiers that are guarding him.  The architectural structure in the background is his castle.  It appears the king and his travelers have been waylaid and he is pointing and telling the guards which way the highwaymen went. Fine detailed lines, vibrant colors, golden scrolls and filigree like painting encircle the outer scalloped box's lid.  The open curtained carriage door, the horses rearing, soldiers with spears, ladies in waiting all tell the story of the event.

The Russian Art Painting Schools changed religious artists into a lacquer box economy in different cities of Russia.  Handmade from papier mache and hand painted by oil & tempera paints, it took weeks to produce a box of multi-layer lacquer finish, with hinges. The artist is highly skilled in painting of Russian Fairy Tales, animals, and architecture.
The box is from an estate of one owner and in very good condition.
