Hand painted round Russian lacquer box. Most of these boxes feature Russian fairy tales. According to my fairy tale books, this scene is sometimes called "Meeting on the way to the well" and is a scene of village life. I believe the literal translation of the title to be "Along the Street". In either event, the girl is carrying buckets to get water from a well and meets a young man along the way.
Very nicely painted. Mstera school. Signed by Vinogradova. Very good condition. Probably 1970s or 80s. 1 1/4" tall by 3 1/2" diameter.
