This charming, jewelled box was made by Fabergé in around 1900 and comes from the collection of Bentley & Skinner, the London jewellers by appointment to both Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. Fabergé was established in St Petersburg in 1842, and by the late nineteenth century, was Russia’s largest and best-known jewellery house. This fabulous little box is carved from bowenite, a wonderful pale green hardstone. The clasp and hinges of the box are set with glittering diamonds, and the clasp features a wonderful and bright cabochon-cut ruby. This exquisite treasure is a wonderful example of Fabergé craftsmanship.
Should you choose to make this purchase we would be delighted to send it to you in a Bentley & Skinner handmade leather case packed in a gift-wrapped Bentley & Skinner black and gold presentation box. Shortly afterwards we will send you on a valuation for insurance purposes for your reference and safekeeping.
