Web Description: 
This gilded and enameled vessel in neo-Renaissance style is marked with the glassworks' initials (I.S.Z.) in Russian, and it is dated 1863. The bowl is said to be a christening gift in 1863 from Czar Alexander II to the newborn son of Prince Sheremetev. The neo-Renaissance style [see 98.3.8] had been displayed at the London world's fair of 1862, and the Imperial Glassworks in St. Petersburg was quick to adopt it.
