This type of brooch decorated with the imperial eagle was among the most popular presents given by Tsar Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Feodorovna. The inventory of the Imperial Cabinet indicates that these brooches were taken as gifts by the Imperial Family on their many trips in Russia and abroad, most of them made by Thielemann. The diamond version as shown here is the most valuable, others were less richly decorated. An identical brooch with mention on the back of a present from Nicholas II in 1906 sold at Christie's London, 26 November 2018, lot 217.
