Lot 1548Edward Schramm, Faberge Russian Faberge Royal diamond and sapphire brooch, mounted in silver and gold. St Petersburg, 1890s. Diam. 2.5 cm
A Russian Fabergé Royal diamond and sapphire brooch, set with numerous old mine-cut diamonds in circkles and cabochon-cut sapphires in bunches, mounted in silver and gold. Workmaster Edward Schramm, St. Petersburg, 1890s. Diam. 2.5 cm

Provenance: Member of the Danish Parliament and Chairman of the Handicraft Promotion, Gertie Wandel, née Møller (1894–1988), married to merchant Helge Wandel. In Gentofte, north of Copenhagen, Gertie and Helge Wandel were neighbors to Prince Axel (1888–1964) and Princess Margaretha (1899–1977) of Denmark, and the nearness developed into a close friendship. After the Princess' death her son, Prince George of Denmark (1920–1986), gave the brooch to Gertie Wandel to recall her and Princess Margaretha as two good friends. Thence Gertie Wandel's grandson, who by the way was Prince George's godson, until today. The brooch may have come to Prince Axel and Princess Margaretha several ways. Prince Axel was son of Prince Valdemar of Denmark, and thus the niece of Tsaritsa Maria Feodorovna and cousin of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. Princess Margaretha mother, Princess Ingeborg of Denmark (1878–1958), wife of Prince Carl of Sweden, was the daughter of Frederik VIII and consequently also the niece of Tsaritsa Maria Feodorovna and cousin of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia.

Prince Axel was a naval officer, businessman and 1934–1953 director of the East Asiatic Company. This is the reason for the maritime element in the form of the anchor in the monogram.
