  • Consignments Are Currently Being Accepted for Future Auctions


NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's auction of Russian Works of Art on May 23, 2024 saw international competition drive exceptional results and a sale total far beyond expectations. The sale presented a range of objects dating from the 17th century to the 20th century, including vertu, Fabergé, silver, bronzes, porcelain and icons from American collections and estates.

Important Jeweled and Enameled Gold Portrait Snuff Box - Sold for $70,350
Highlighting the auction was a jeweled and enameled gold snuff box that determined bidders from both sides of the Atlantic drove to $70,350, far surpassing its $30,000-50,000 estimate. Fitted with a portrait of Empress Catherine the Great (1762-1796), the snuff box was made by Les Frères Toussaint, one of the most important bijoutiers working in Hanau in the second half of the eighteenth century. Russian sovereigns, like their Western European counterparts, presented gifts with their images, a tradition which reached its peak during Catherine’s reign. The Empress had many agents who purchased an immense number of luxury items in Western Europe, including gold boxes from Germany and Hanau, in particular. Prior to being acquired by the present owner, this snuff box was in the Robert Lehman Collection, one of this country’s most exceptional private art collections, most of which was a bequest to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York following his death in 1969.
