    The brooch is a striking interpretation of the Renaissance taste by Michael Perkhin and featured in the ground-breaking Fabergé exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum celebrating the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977. It recalls ornamental motifs on the coronation vase presented by Leopold de Rothschild from Fabergé London and presented to King George V and Queen Mary on their coronation day 11 June 1911.
