A Russian jeweled gold and enamel brooch, formed as two epaulettes, possibly of the Palace Grenadiers Regiment, but with the applied Cyrillic abbreviations 2K and TK rather than the ruling Emperor’s cypher, all within crossed laurel branches set with spinel and pink topaz, the crossing point applied with a diamond-set gold Roman numeral V. The reverse of the brooch engraved with the Russian romantic pet names Mizya and Kotik. Contained in fitted period box. Apparently unmarked. Width: 1 1/4 in. (3.3 cm).
