Russian silver snuffbox with niello.

Silver Snuffbox with niello, with an amazing and rare plot of a meeting with a wild boar.

Depicts a peasant family meeting a wild boar on the outskirts of the forest. The mother hugged the child and the father, defensively or threatening, put out his fist. Although the wild boar is approaching, it has a pretty face - which means it is not aggressive. The artist places this scene as a curiosity, a funny adventure, an attraction.
