This malachite-veneered vase was made in St Petersburg, possibly to a design dated 1826, by Ivan Galberg (1778–1863). The design is identical to the shape of the vase and pedestal although it does not show the gilt bronze mounts in the form of the Imperial Russian and British Royal Arms which are applied on either side. Nicholas I’s consort, Alexandra Feodorovna, sent the vase as a gift for George IV to add to the furnishings at Windsor Castle.
