This book not only offers a fascinating range of jewels and objects d'art crafted in St. Petersburg, beginning with the reigns of the empresses Elizabeth and Catherine the Great and ending in 1917 with that of Nicholas II, it is also intertwined with captivating personal history. It describes the development of style and design within the art of the St. Petersburg goldsmith, putting it into historical context. Many of the pieces discussed come from private collections in Finland and Sweden, each with a unique provenance happily preserved in anecdotes, letters, diaries, historical documents, and photographs. Contains 400 stunning photographs.

Review:

While lavishly illustrated, the commentary is equally interesting, not just for collectors but for anyone who wants to fill in the blanks of old Russian history, particularly the connection with Finland and Sweden. --Crafthaus"
