SealsBadges and InsigniaOrdersMedalsCoins





The collection of seals comprises 1945 items and consists of both Russian (with many dies of the 17th to 20th centuries) and Western European sections, with an isolated group of 65 seals of the Doges of the Venetian Republic (14th to 18th centuries) and 13 lead papal bulae (13th-18th centuries). The collection is complemented by heraldic book plates, drawings and embroidered coat-of-arms. Overall, it is fascinating not only from the scholarly or historical point of view, but also because many items are remarkably beautiful examples of jewellery and engraving.

The oldest Russian seal dates to the late 17th century and belonged to the Albazinsky jail. Russian private seals, made of metal and stone, occupy an important place in the collection, and are often particularly famous for their former owners: seals with the coat-of-arms of field-marshal A. V. Suvorov-Rimniksky and his relations, including his grandson A. A. Suvorov; seals of Alexander I, with his monogram for Tsarskoye Selo; Nicholas I; Alexander II; Grand Duke Constantine Constantinovich; other members of the Romanov family. Several artistically executed table seals of Baron D. A. Benckendorf with his coat-of-arms should also be mentioned, particularly as a number were made at the Faberge workshop.
