It’s the work of Faberge workmaster Michael Perchin, and is based on furniture designed in 1839 by Leo von Klenze for Tsar Nicholas I for the new Hermitage in St. Petersburg. It’s crafted out of gold and enamel, with the surfaces ground to resemble the grain in mahogany. The front is a removable drawer. Miniature furniture by Faberge is very rare; other similar pieces, including a miniature table and desk, are in the collection of Queen Elisabeth II.
