This superb desk clock was 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 clock features a plaque of radiating pink guilloche enamel enclosed in a yellow gold frame decorated with neoclassical motifs. The clock face itself is surrounded by a bright yellow gold frame and had a lovely white opalescent background. The clock has a hinged easel stand allowing it to sit on a desk comfortably. This piece is signed by workmaster Henrik Wigstrom, one of the most important Fabergé workmasters.
