RIXRADvidz : I've seen several of these objects, in exhibitions, museums and collections, they Are every bit of a work of Magic as well as skills with the tools. if you ever get a chance, you will kick yourself if you don't. Go See These Things.

ZS 15 : If he must touch it he should have cotton gloves on. He's stabbing his sausage fingers in it.

Philly Mouse : Absolutely breathtaking! Faberge was an amazing genius whose like we will not see again.

moo moo : :54...I thought he was gonna knock it off the stand flopping his hand around like that...

landseer lover : Oh... I don't know... surely a breathtaking work of art from Faberge, but I do not think for a second, that the regiment was unaware of the value. Two guards, blocking any access to the piece, from the rear. They knew full well what they had.......... but it makes for good tele I suppose.

Hjordis Torfa : This is so magnificent beauty it's a true pleasure to have been able see it.. Thank you Antique Road show for your interesting educational information 💕✌💖

Paul Neugass : 'Funny' the value we ascribe go physical objects, eh?

All Will Be Well : Wish he would stop touching it. Why doesn't he use a pointer?

Stefan m : but then, if it will never be for sale. isn't the item just priceless?
