    Table bronze frame on two feet, made in the Russian style in the form of a peasant log hut facade with a triangular roof, decorated with onlay lace decors and a "towel"- a short carved board that closes the junctions of the bargeboards. A cut-out for a photograph is made as a rectangular window framed with carved architrave. A hinged folding figured leg-stop is behind the frame. A painted composition by V.Fyodorov (?) “At sunset a guy walks by my house…” is inserted in the frame. The composition depicts a young man with balalaika in his hand standing near the window of a peasant log hut and an embarrassed girl in sarafan (traditional Russian dress).
