Product Description

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"

Excellent book.Hard back,top quality paper used.A lot of books give good illustration but this books illustrations are absolutely superb.The content regarding information was fantastic.Some books give perhaps a picture.when it was made and very little else.This book gives superb pictures,when it was made,explicit detail of what it is made of when and by whom.For me the icing on the cake is the history of the jewellery which is so important.This book has everything and I would highly recommend it to any lover of precious gems.

Bought as a gift for my wife who loves looking at pictures of and reading about classic jewellery. She has other books on Russian Court jewels but this book covers examples that are not included elsewhere. Beautiful pictures and masses of interesting information.
