Synopsis >

A cigarette case many would like to get their hands on. And one lucky buyer soon will - it's being auctioned on June 5th by Bonhams in London. The Faberge piece belonged to Russia's last tsar, Nicholas II. Director of Bonham's Russian Department, Sophie Law, says that what makes it especially valuable is that it was a gift from Nicholas' wife Tsarina Alexandra after the birth of their second daughter, Tatiana.
