Nice Fakes

Fabergé; gold, jade, pearls and crystal. Decorations for royal shelves I think.

Botanical models for scientific purposes:
made by The Incredible Blaschkas (though they also did work for royalty). These are made of glass, all handmade, lamp-worked. Amazing detail and colour. Years of work...
