An auction of Russian art and antiques is to be held in the early part of June in St. Petersburg.
A special place in the auction will be held by a collection of icons which were made between the XVI and XX centuries.
One of the top lots will be a gift ring created in honor of the 300 year anniversary of the Romanov's workshop for Carl Faberge. The ring is made of gold with a silver lining in the form of a double-headed eagle.
In addition to the the previous items, painitings and antiques will be offered including tea and coffee services from the middle of the XIX century.
