Russian patriarch's robe (sakkos)

(17th century)

Appraised by Mr. Linsner in 2013

Perhaps the last bejeweled and pearl encrusted Russian 17th century sakkos before the abolishment of the title and riches of the rank by Czar Peter the Great. The robe was rediscovered in the possession of a New York collector.
