- Curator's comments
- The design is derived from a common type of Russian cross of the sixteenth or seventeenth century (see Khanenko Collection 1869, no.159, for a similar cross). Brogden exhibited a different design of Russian cross at the International Exhibition in London in 1871 (see Art Journal Illustrated Catalogue, p.61), also closely copied from a Russian seventeenth-century example (see Khanenko Collection, 1869, no.162).
