This beautiful glass-holder was painted by talented artist Providokhin from the village of Fedoskino. It portrays admiral Kornilov standing on shipboard.
Vice Admiral Vladimir Alexeyevich Kornilov (1806—1854) was a Russian soldier who took part in the Crimean War.

The exterior of the piece is covered with light gray coloring decorated with blurry silver spots. The interior is traditionally red.
