Morozko (Морозко). Fedoskino, undated (circa 1970s). N. Teslitskaya. The fairy tale is a classic known as "The Kind and the Unkind Girls". It was collected by Alexander Afanasyev in Narodnye russkie skazki (Народные Русские сказки) in the mid-19th century. It is also known as "The Story of King Frost", in The Yellow Fairy Book from 1894.

Once there was a woman who had both a daughter of her own named Marfushka, whom she loves, and a step-daughter ma,ed Nastynka, whom she didn't love. One day, the woman ordered her husband to take her step-daughter out into the winter fields and leave her there, which command the cowardly husband obeys. Morozko (i.e., Father Frost) finds Nastynka. Despite her despair and distress, she is polite and kind to him, so he gives her with beautiful gifts and garments. Expecting to find her no longer alive, the stepmother hears her tales and send out Marfushka for the same. She is rude and insolent and Morozko freezes her. The greedy stepmother gets her just rewards. There are elaborations and enhancements to the tale, most notably in the films and television shows about Morozko.

Oil, lacquer, hinged papier-mache box. 6¼"x3¼"x1¼". 1 only. The box is in very good vintage condition, light wear and a few unobtrusive lacquer cracks.
