Gold boxes by Jean François Xavier Boudde (fl. 1769-1785/9) are quite rare; only a handful survive in public and private collections. The greatest number are housed in the Hermitage's Gold Room and include jewelled presentation boxes with portraits of Catherine II, Grand Duke Pavel Petrovich, and Alexander I as a child. Outside of Russia, a gold and enamel box with a view of the Bronze Horseman is in the Gilbert Collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum and large gold box with enamel plaques after Boucher is in the collection of the Musée Cognacq-Jay, Paris (inv. J486).
