Covers for icons, Gospels, liturgical goods and precious utensils, exhibited in the hall, were executed for court use in Kremlin Workshops in the time of their heyday. Although not numerous, cult objects by masters of Yaroslavl and Kostroma, nielloed and enamelled artworks of Solvychegodsk, Velikiy Ustyug and Tobolsk are very interesting.
Among the works, executed by Petersburg and Moscow masters in the style of Rococo, Classicism and Historicism, church utensils and various secular jewellery are most attractive. The works by court jeweller Carl Faberg, the basic part of which are world famous Easter surprises, are worthy of particular attention.
