Two glass cameos cut by Empress Maria Feodorovna. Of the larger one, there are currently only two others known to exist~ One at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art (see link below) and one at a museum in Russia, I believe the Pavlosk Museum.
The second one is very similar to, and may be, the one the Empress is wearing in oil painting of her mourning the death of Czar Paul but that is still being researched.
Both need a good cleaning!
