Rough translation of the Russian proverb etched into this beautifully hand painted and tooled wooden trinket casket. Is the young girl in distress or ill or is her father or lover heading off to war, what a cherished momento it must have been to the original owner. The octagonal hinge lidded box is intricately carved and hand painted.
See photos for condition, hinges work properly. Approx 3.25x 4.25. There are many light scratches on the bottom of the box. I cannot tell if they are just scratches or some are letters.
