The box is features the major character from the tale of the Humpbacked Little Pony-Ivan and Fire Bird.
Short plot of the story :
In the beginning of the tale, one of the three sons- Ivan, caught the magic mare that trampled down wheat on his father's field. This mare promised Ivan to present three foals in exchange for freedom. Later two of these foals turned into the steeds with golden manes while the third one turned into the Humpbacked Little Pony. The old greedy Tsar obliged Ivan to fulfill different tasks, and the Humpbacked Little Pony always helped him. And in the end of a story instead of the tsar Ivan dipped himself in three cauldrons of boiling water, boiling milk and ice cold water, and transformed into a very handsome young man and the Tsar only boiled in the first one...
Here we can see Ivan catches the feather of the Firebird from it's tail.
The exterior of this box was painted with black lacquer and the interior was painted with red lacquer. The sides of the lid are ornamented with gold scroll work, accented at the middle with silver dots. The lid of this box is hinged from the left of the box, and the box flat. The artist has signed the composition with his name and the title.
