This magnificent flower model is crafted in the manner of Fabergé. The model depicts three sprigs of lily of the valley: each sprig features a gold stem laden with flowers finished with white and green enamel. The sprigs issue from a trompe l’oeil rock crystal vase, carved to seem as if filled with water. The vase also supports three curling leaves, each of gold finished to the inside face with green enamel. The underside of the model is marked ‘750’, features an indistinct stamp, and is inscribed with a serial number.
