I came across a few of Russian Imperial miniatures, but (of course) I have the following problems: authenticity and value:))

Can someone who is more experienced in this area give me an idea about the items I am going to list.... 1) AUTHENTICITY 2) PRODUCER 3) VALUE ( FOR ME TO PAY)

1) St Stanislaus miniature in gold, 12 mm

2) St Stanislaus miniature in silver 20mm

Agree with Alex. Russia did not have a tradition of miniatures. They were mainly worn by overseas Russian diplomats and forrign recipients of Russian awards.

Thank you very much. I suspected Chobillion as the producer of the gold one. Chobillon advertised two miniatures of this order in their sale catalogue. This is definitely the smaller one. 

The one that worries me is the silver one posted above. That miniature is structured in a way that I have not seen before.

Any idea who might be the producer? Also the time of the production? 

These are the photos from the original Chobillon sale catalogue.

You can see St Stanislaus miniature in two sizes.

It's hard to say, who is the manufacturer, because there are no maker's marks.

 I have two St. Anna miniatures that look similar to yours. First British, second French made.

Indeed, british St.Anna miniatures are pretty close to the french. So it`s practically impossible to identified the manufacturer without marks (or without group).

St Anna miniature, 11mm, gold

This might be French production, A.Bertrand according to some catalogues that I have.

Unfortunately, this catalogue contains illustrations, but I am almost sure this is the piece from the catalogue.

If someone knows for sure, please tell us.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
