A slender gold column of exquisite workmanship, with a miniature of Nicholai II on it set with diamonds and crystals. The column is delicately chased with Icanthus leaves in green gold, a touch characteristic of Faberge who made the bibelot for the Czarina to present to Nicholai II on his birthday in 1907. It is contained in the original case and was found in the Alexander Palace.
