A Fabergé Gold And Gem-set Paperknife By Eric Kollin

Description

A Fabergé yellow gold and gem-set paperknife with book-blade, with a “samaradok” molten texture handle set with a ruby, sapphire and diamond, workmaster Eric Kollin, St Petersburg, measuring 12.5cm x 1.5cm, circa 1890, gross weight 24.6 grams.

A handsome letter opener made by Fabergé. Fabergé was established in St Petersburg in 1842, and by the late nineteenth century, was Russia’s largest and best-known jewellery house. The house has become known for their royal commissions and their close ties to the family of Tsar Nicholas II. This piece is created from gold, with a glittering gem set handle. The handle is rendered using the technique of ‘samaradok’, a Russian technique that mimics the appearance of raw, natural gold. The gold is set with three stones, a sapphire, a ruby, and a diamond. This piece bears marks for workmaster Eric Kollin, who held a high position in the Fabergé workshop.
