This exquisite flower model is crafted in the distinctive style of the famous Russian jeweler, Karl Fabergé. Fabergé is perhaps best known for the iconic Imperial Easter Eggs made for the Russian monarchy. Nevertheless, even before the Royal commissions, Fabergé was well known for his creations of other fine objets d’art, including several models of flowers, made from only the finest of materials.
This model depicts an arrangement of flowers in a clear vase. The flowers have hardstone petals issuing from naturalistic stems of solid gold, with green leaves in nephrite jade. The model is set within a rock crystal planter, which gives the illusion of containing water.
