Transcription: [double-headed eagle] PANSIES Graceful spray of pansies carved in amethyst, the centers set with brown diamonds. Calyxes are formed in jade. Rising on slender gold stems with leaves of Siberian nephrite, serrated and realistically modeled, the little pansy is set in rock crystal carved to represent water in a vase. Created by the world-famed Russian jeweler, Karl Faberge, it is hallmarked with his name in Russian, and the initials of one of his leading masters, Henrik Wigstroem, and the numeral “72” denoting the Russian equivalent of 18 karat gold.
