I was very pleased to have found this today! I've seen that image somewhere before, but can't remember exactly where. Didn't find the image anywhere on the web, but found loads that are quite similar.
The condition of this box is great. All original.
A bit about Troika:
"Troika is the traditional Russian carriage drawn by a team of three horses harnessed abreast. It has become a symbol of Russia and is widely employed in folkloric scenes, movies (such as Doctor Zhivago), paintings and literature.
It first appeared in the 18th century and was mainly used for postal services, for transporting passengers (mainly for long distances) and later in festivities such as weddings. The Russian troika is known for its high speed (up to 50 kilometers an hour) and was often compared to a flying bird."
Thanks for taking time to see my trinket box.
