THE SELLER WILL COVER SHIPPING WITH REGULAR MAIL FOR THIS ITEM!
Extremely rare miniature portrait (formerly set into a bracelet?) of a member of Russian Royal family, Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich who was also a well-known Russian poet writing under the pseudonym "K.R." (Konstantin Romanov).
Constantin Constantinovich (1858 Strelna by St. Petersburg - 1915 Pavlovsk) was the second son of Grand Duke Constantin Nikolaevich and Grand Duchess Alexandra Iosifovna, grandson of Tsar Nikolai I.
Our images nr.10-20 offer his extensive biography.
With a great possibility this very small miniature is an original work of well known Russian portrait miniaturist and colaborator of Faberge, Vasili Ivanovich Zuev (1870-1932), especially known as an author of numerous portraits of the members of Russian Royal family (sic!). Our images nr.21-22 show another miniature of his in the Moscow collection of Sergey and Tatiana Podstanitsky and miniature offered in 2011 at Sotheby's New York for US$ 50,000.
