Boxes: Fabergé made
dozens of boxes of every description and for
varied purposes. Cigar boxes for tables, cigarette
boxes to be carried, compacts, visiting card
cases,and many for no purpose other than to
be enjoyed as presentation boxes from the Czar
by whomever he was gifting. All were exquisite
and flawlessly made of gold or silver, sometimes
of malachite, rock crystal or tortoise shell,
mother of pearl or semi precious materials.
The "beautiful and perfect enclosure of
space" was their raison d'etre.
