Mikhail Perkhin (1860-1903) - Seal
This Fabergé seal was kept on King George V’s desk at Buckingham Palace and was likely purchased on 28 October 1912 for £19. It consists of a handle of polished nephrite with red and yellow gold, diamond and ruby mounts in the form of a band, from which swags of leaves centred by a rose are suspended. The handle is mounted on a base of red and yellow gold in the form of an entwined dolphin. The gold matrix is engraved with the crowned cipher of the King. Michael Perchin, c. 1900.
The fruit of the hala tree only grows on the female tree. It can be eaten when it turned brought yellow. It was used throughout Polynesia as a food during times of famine. The round fruit is a cluster of seed pods. As it ripens, the fruit breaks apart into single seeds called keys. A new hala tree will sprout from these seeds."
