This fine miniature frame was made by Fabergé. Fabergé was established in St Petersburg in 1842, and by the late nineteenth century, was Russia’s largest and best-known jewellery house. The house has become known for their royal commissions and their close ties to the family of Tsar Nicholas II. This enchanting frame is carved from bowenite, which has a lovely pale green hue. The bowenite surrounds the circular picture aperture, which is framed with lilac enamel and glinting rose-cut diamonds. Atop the central frame is a delicate gold bow, set with further diamonds. This wonderful piece captures the style and craftsmanship of late nineteenth century Fabergé work. This object has a rich royal provenance, originally purchased by Prince Gregory Nikolaevitch Troubetzkoy
