Perfection, down to a tea: The Royal Family's private Fabergé collection goes on display in Buckingham Palace

This Fabergé vase was presented to King Edward VII by his nephew by marriage Tsar Nicholas II when the King visited Reval (now Tallin) in June 1908. The nephrite vase is mounted in silver-gilt and gold with white guilloché enamel, and is set with cabochon moonstones and chalcedony. Mark of Henrik Wigström. According to the accounts of the imperial cabinet, it was paid for on 23 May 1908 (2,500 roubles) but was not delivered to the King until November 1908.

A Hardstone Bonbonniere by Carl Faberge, set with diamonds in the form of a quince. Originally purchased by Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna on Christmas Eve, 1900. It was later acquired by King Farouk of Egypt.
