Imperial presentation vase-shape silver trophy in the late Georgian style, with flaring foot, angular handles and domed cover; the body is applied with laurel swags beneath a wide band bearing a Cyrillic inscription “In Honor of Her Imperial Majesty Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna” and a double-headed eagle on the reverse; the upper section of the vessel is chased with a band of husks; the cover is topped with an acorn finial and chased with acanthus-leaf decoration.

 

The item is one of a large number of such trophies, part of Fabergé’s obligatory production for the Imperial court. These were awarded mainly as horse-racing and yachting trophies.
