Badge of the Horseguards Regiment, honouring the 25th Anniversary of Imperial Patronage

Alfred Thilemann

Faberge workshop

Gold, silver, enamel

This badge was instituted on March 2, 1906, in honour of the 25th anniversary of the Dowager Empress Maria Fyodorovna's official patronage of the Regiment. It takes the form of the Regiment's small white and red flag with the monogram FM attached; the composition terminates in the double-headed eagle. Engraved on the reverse is the figure XXV.

The badge is still in its original case, bearing the trade-mark of the Faberge firm, supplier to the royal court, which includes the representation of the double-headed eagle and the inscription:[trans.] St Petersburg, Moscow, London.

On the reverse is the artist's mark and the hallmark 56.
