Frame with a miniature of Queen Alexandra (1844-1925)
This frame is unusual, lacquer being a relatively rare technique in Fabergé’s oeuvre. It was produced in the workshop of Anders Nevalainen, who specialised in frames and enamelled objects. The coloured photograph by W&D Downey dates from 1913.
Mark of Anders Nevalainen; silver mark of 88 zolotniks (1896-1908)
