EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph showcases the Green Jasper Snuff-Box, a historic treasure once belonging to the Russian Imperial Romanov Family. The snuff-box, crafted from green jasper and adorned with an abundance of diamonds, is a stunning testament to the opulence and grandeur of the Romanov Dynasty. The Romanovs, Russia's last ruling family, were overthrown during the Russian Revolution in 1917. Following the Bolshevik seizure of power, the Russian state jewels, including this magnificent snuff-box, were sold at auction to raise funds for the new Soviet government. The photograph, taken in 1927, captures the snuff-box on display during its auction at Christie Manson and Woods, a renowned auction house in London. The image offers a glimpse into the past, revealing the intricate details of the snuff-box and its precious stones, which sparkle brilliantly under the auction house lights. The Romanovs, also known as the House of Romanov or the Romanoff family, ruled Russia for over three centuries. Their reign was marked by significant cultural and historical achievements, as well as periods of political instability and conflict. The Green Jasper Snuff-Box, with its rich history and exquisite craftsmanship, stands as a symbol of the dynasty's wealth and power. Today, the snuff-box is a cherished piece of historical artifact, reminding us of the Romanovs' legacy and the tumultuous events that shaped Russia's history.
