Russian Antique Decorative Arts and Jewelry

The most noted Russian jeweler from the late 19th century to 1917, the year of the Revolution, was Carl Fabergé. He produced some of the world’s finest enamel work, featured on many different types of items, ranging from clocks to frames to jewelry.  Works of art included sculpture such as hardstone flower studies and miniature animals, and household items such as bellpushes, often made for the Tsar and other wealthy Russian families. Original Fabergé works of art have become some of the most coveted antique items on the market.  (More to come.)

Russian Treasures
The 150-year-old company À la Vieille Russie has greatly expanded its gallery at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street. “We wanted to have more space to do exhibitions,” said Mark Schaffer, an owner. The first show, “St. Petersburg and Imperial Style,” includes antique Russian jewelry, Russian furniture, large Russian paintings, Imperial porcelain and enamel-monogrammed glasses.

A Fabergé silver caviar dish in the form of a salmon and a Fabergé cut-glass-and-silver punch bowl would look good atop the mahogany ladies’ writing table inlaid with marquetry foliage. Above it you could hang the portrait of Czar Nicholas II by Nikolai G. Shilder, which Mr. Schaffer said is similar to one by Shilder in the Peterhof Palace Museum, outside St. Petersburg. And for the last smokers in the world, there is a gilded silver Fabergé lighter in the form of a miniature samovar, circa 1900.
