The Imperial Presentation Box, with Nicholas II Portrait

One of several Imperial Presentation Boxes that Fabergé made over the years for Tsar Nicholas. This startlingly beautiful piece was obviously meant for a family member because of the lavishness of its design and meant for Nicholas to present because it bears his portrait. To whom it was given is not known. The original box was made of gold set with diamonds. The reproduction is in silver gilt, with a translucent ivory ground of sunburst enamel guilloché bearing an overlay of gold laurel swags terminating in ribbon bows, large stones punctuating these and slightly smaller Austrian crystals replacing the 26 diamonds framing the portrait of Nicholas. The oval frame is surmounted with an Imperial Crown set with 2 large crystals and several smaller ones. The four corners of the box are brilliant strawberry enamel, each set with a large Austrian crystal on a gold ribbon setting. The box is lined in velvet. Workmaster: Michael Perchin, 1890.
