Product Overview

This beautiful Fedoskino box is a creation of Z.Bobkova. It features the Snowmaiden or Snegurochka walking through the winter forest. Every winter she and her grandfather Ded Moroz (Russians call Santa "Ded Moroz") come from the faraway North Pole to wish Happy New Year to little children and their parents.
The scene is painted in light blue and white oils suitable for reproduction of the snow covered winter forest. Mother-of-pearl shines through the Snowmaiden's dress. Aluminum powder highlights the Snowmaiden's skirt and hat; silver paint is used to draw ornaments on her jacket and hat. Gold metal leaf shines through the thin tree painted from the left of the Snowmaiden.
The box's interior is traditionally red.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The box has a hinge from the left of the scene, and rests on a flat bottom. It is signed with the artist's name and the village of Fedoskino. Appor. size 5"x3.5"x1.25".
