I purchased a small collection of these on my last trip to England. Sweet little miniature lacquer hinged box with red interior. Top is hand painted and signed. Depicts a Russian prince seated and gazing wistfully into a pool of water. I'm sure this is a scene from a Russian fairy or folk tale, but I'm not sure which one. Measures 2.75 inches by 2 inches. Probably 1940's/1950's, colors are good, excellent condition.
