Transcription: [double-headed eagle] The Schaffer Collection of Russian Imperial Art Treasures ROCKEFELLER CENTER NEW YORK #2376 Gold link bracelet by CARL G. FABERGE, the celebrated Russian Court jeweler. The center bears a shield-shaped plaque which is translucently enameled over a chased (guilloché) surface in a rich red, and against this background is mounted the Russian Imperial double-headed Eagle, beautifully chased. The breast bears a diamond and the crown surmounting it is likewise set with a diamond. Of exquisite refinement and delicacy it is a piece typical of the work of this great artist.
