Nikolai Breaks the Bank!

Remember An Estate Treasure Named Nikolai? The Fabergé portrait of the personal bodyguard of the last Czarina of Russia proved to be precious indeed.

Estimated to sell for $500,00-$800,000, Nikolai did much, much better. He fetched $5.2 million!

You can read about the provenance that made him such a treasure here.
The Chamber-Cossack named Nikolai.
His eyes are sapphires. His beard is Siberian jasper.
