This unique pin depicts the scene of a raised drawbridge of St. Petersburg with Peter and Paul Cathedral on the background. Its towers reflect in the water as the sun rises in the background. Its detail extratends to even the ripples of the water. Hand painted on mother of pearl and set in German silver, this brooch is a lovely gift at any occasion. Russian brooches are hand painted on mother of pearl bases that are nested into metal frames with a pin on the back. They are painted in Fedoskino style.
