It is a great INVESTMENT.

History of sale: We found the best sample. In 1911, imperial presentation snuffbox was decorated with a portrait of Nicholas II, the wizard Vasiliy Zuev - see the image. In 1913 on behalf of the emperor it was presented as a gift Turhan Pasha, Turkish Ambassador in St. Petersburg.
Very interesting fact: This snuff box was purchased from Faberge in 1909 for 2500 rubles (for comparison: the price of a 7 - rooms apartment on the prestigious Big Sea Street in St. Petersburg at that time had a price about 2000 rubles - now the price for apartment in that area is $2.000.000 - $3.000.000 !!).
This box sold on Christie's in London in November 2010 for $1.463.985 !!!!. Please compare our item and the item on the box - and our price with price of that box.
Also, only the frame for brooch with diamonds made by Faberge recently sold for $15000 - please see the screenshot.
Recently we found one more version how it may have been used. The miniature may have been used as AWARD. Look at the portrat of Kutuzov - he was wearing miniature of Peter 1st as award (the same style and the same size). Please note: last image is for sample only.

WIKIPEDIA: Peter Carl Faberge, also known as Karl Gustavovich Faberge was a Russian jeweller best known for the famous Faberge eggs made in the style of genuine Easter eggs, but using precious metals and gemstones rather than more mundane materials. He's the founder of the famous jewelry legacy House of Faberge.The House of Faberge is a jewellery firm founded in 1842 in St. Petersburg, Imperial Russia, by Gustav Faberge, using the accented name Faberge. Gustav's sons Peter Carl Faberge and Agathon Faberge Sr. and grandsons followed him in running the business until it was nationalised by the Bolsheviks in 1918.
