This marvelous handpainted, papier-mache box depicts the legend of Ruslan & Ludmilla. In this scene, Ruslan is in battle with the evil Chernomor. Artist Signed. Kholui. Excellent condition. Quite large at 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 1 1/4" high. As with the many other Russian lacquer boxes currently listed on my site, this one was acquired from an estate in the early 1990's and has been in my safekeeping ever since.
