Scope and Contents

Transcription: [double-headed eagle] RUSSIAN IMPERIAL EXHIBIT

Article No. E-313 Supple Bracelet of woven gold. The alternate links are fashioned of green and of red gold, which the Russians were so fond of. It was made by the famous court jeweler Faberge, and although the bracelet is not marked with his initials, its style and workmanship mark it as unmistakably his. The catch is marked with the number “56” for the finest grade of Russian gold.

From the quarters of the Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna in the Alexander Palace, Tsarskoye Selo.

Mrs. John L. Pratt January 31, 1935.
