History of sale: I found the best sample. In 1911, imperial presentation snuffbox was decorated with a portrait of Nicholas II, the wizard Vasily Zuev – see the image. In 1913 on behalf of the emperor it was presented as a gift Turhan Pasha, Turkish Ambassador in St. Petersburg. Very interesting fact: This snuff box was purchased from Faberge in 1909 for 2500 rubles (for comparison: the price of a 7-room apartment on the prestigious Big Sea Street in St. Petersburg at that time was about 2000 rubles – now the price for apartment in that area is $2.000.000 – $3.000.000).
This box is sold on Christie’s in London in November 2010 for $1.463.985 !!!!. Please compare our item and the item on the box – and our price with price of that box.

Кроме мастеров славу Фаберже создавали и художники, которых Фаберже возглавлял сам. Фирма прибегала к помощи знаменитых художников, как, например, А. Бенуа, но был и свой штат, в котором долгое время известностью пользовался шведский рисовальщик Франсуа Бирбаум. В фирме также трудился целый ряд модельеров, создававших восковые модели будущих произведений. У Фаберже работали и художники–миниатюристы, самым знаменитым из которых считался Василий Зуев.
