Baluster vase


RCIN 899

Produced in Ekaterinburg, an important centre for stone carving from the end of the eighteenth century, this baluster-shaped vase is inscribed with the name Petr Ivanovich Miklashevsky, director of the Ekaterinburg Lapidary Workshops from 1859–66. There is no record of the vase entering the Royal Collection but given its date it is most likely to have been acquired by Queen Victoria or the Prince of Wales.

    The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
