You are thinking of the companion catalogue to the travelling exhibition "Faberge in America".

I'm sure that if you look on some used book sites, such as addall.com or maybe amazon, you can find it.  It is an excellent work.
Faberge in America by Geza von Habsburg
Thames & Hudson, 1996  ISBN 0-500-01699-2

According to the book, the other items in the Minshall Collection of Imperial provenance (not including the nephrite miniatures):
the Red Cross Easter Egg, the square yellow guilloche frame (from Nicholas' study), hand-seal with purporine handle (belonging to Alexandra), frame for 9 miniatures (belonging to Alexandra), Kremlin Tower Clock (Nicholas'), Miniature Cup in gold.

I do not actually know where I could leave this *ad* but I leave it in here. If anyone of you are going to visit or live in Finland you should not miss the exhibition about Faberge itesm in Tampere from 17.6 There is about to be many items from Moscow(Kremil)museom and two imperial eggs but I do not know wich eggs are they.

Heres the finnish link: http://www.tampere.fi/vapriikki/nayttelyt/faberge.html

heres the english one: http://www.tampere.fi/english/vapriikki/exhibitions/theeraoffaberge.html

Please, feel free to ask question from me, maps etc. :]

Thank you for the info, MIE, sadly, although I am in London now, I will be back in San Francisco before this opens, and not back in Europe until it closes in October ! Can you find out if there will be a catalogue ?
 [as a side note, my friends and I are thinking of coming to Helsinki in May for EUROVISION !!, what a bizarre win !]
 Cheers,
 Robert

IŽll send the cataluge when I found one but I promise I send it here :]

Ooo! Thank you  ::) ;D :D you do not have no idea what a mess the win cause to us! Everybody are rambling about it and are so happy  ;D :D you should not be so sure if its in Helsinki ;) half of the folk want the Eurovision to be -yeas in our capital Helsinki - but the other half wants that it is held in Lapland, town called Rovaniemi -the hometown of the singer. I perfer the Rovaniemi -though it is not the real Lapland but sure it gives more sightseen to turists. Well we'll see wont we? WELCOME I am going too with full of enthusiasm and waiting for huge show: will we see more monster heavy rock bands in 2007 ? ;)

Have a nice time in San Francisco!
