Product Description

One of St. Petersburg's most famous landmarks, Bank Bridge is a mere 1.85 meters wide, but is instantly recognizable thanks to its four golden-winged griffons, sculpted by Pavel Sokolov. Standing across the Griboedov Canal about 100 meters beyond Kazan Cathedral, the Bank Bridge takes its name from the large neo-classical building opposite, which used to house the Assignation Bank, and is now home to the University of Finance and Economics.

The name Faberge has attained something of a magical quality that sets the standard for beauty and elegance. Many of the members of the extended Romanov family collected pieces made by Faberge. Frames and clocks were very popular gifts since it allowed the givers the opportunity to celebrate special occasions, and commemorate such events for generations to come
