This fascinating tobacco box dates back to the late 19th century and originates from Imperial Russia. The box is made of papier-mache, a material that was widely used in Russia during that time period. What makes this box truly exceptional is the intricate hand-painted design on its hinged lid.

The painting depicts a troika scene, which is a traditional Russian sled drawn by three horses. The details of the painting are exquisite, capturing the essence of the Troika and the beauty of the Russian countryside.

Opening the lid reveals the box's interior, which is lined with tin metal. This lining protects the tobacco from moisture and other environmental factors that could affect its quality.

DIMENSIONS: approximately.

17 cm x 10.8 cm x 5 cm (6.69 inches x 4.25 inches x 1.97 inches).

CONDITION: In good condition, showing age and use, with a beautiful patina and minor wear.
