What are Objects of Vertu?
Objects of Vertu are quite simply, beautiful objects that have been crafted from precious metals and precious stones. Often, the items were created to be admired visually, as well as used functionally, as in the case of snuff boxes, cigarette cases, and scent bottles. Fabergé eggs are some of the most notable examples of objects of vertu seen at auction.
