Measurements: Weight is 6.2 grams. 3 3/8inches (8.5cm) long.

Description : A man's pin that was made by the order of the Grand Duke Vladimir and bears his insignia - it has the Romanov crown and the initial W for Wladimir. A circle of gold ribbon, like a prize-winner's award encircles a beautiful white guilloche enamel ground set with a large W composed of calibre cut and set rubies in a border of gold. Above is the gold bow of the ribbon and a central gold Romanov crown set with small diamonds and 2 beautiful cabochon rubies. 0.93ct rubies.
As is to be expected from this competitor of Faberge working for the Czar's younger brother, the workmanship is superb. It is extremely rare to find pieces that clearly relate directly to the Romanovs.
This pin is as wearable today as it was over 100 years ago. However, its historic provenance make it a true museum / collector's piece.

Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich of Russia was a son of Emperor Alexander II of Russia, a brother of Emperor Alexander III of Russia and the senior Grand Duke of the House of Romanov during the reign of his nephew, Emperor Nicholas II. He and his wife led the artistic and cultural world of Imperial Russia. Their jewelry collection was one of the world's greatest.

Alexander Tillander worked in St Petersburg and was renowned for the quality of his workmanship that won him many commissions by the Romanov family and put him on a par with Faberge, whose St. Petersburg shop was nearby.

Marks and Metal: Hallmarked on the side of the pin with the 56 mark for 14k gold and the maker's mark, that includes a T for Alexander Tillander, (which was verified by French specialists in Paris). There is also an inventory number engraved on the back of the pin: 26674.

Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
