A sweet little taperstick 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 lovely candlestick is crafted from pink guilloché enamel with green enamel details and a neoclassical style embellished gold base. This pretty object combines neoclassical styles and details with lovely pastel colours reminiscent of the mid-eighteenth century. This reflects the ways in which Fabergé artisans combined different historical time periods and infused each piece with a distinctively luxurious Russian style. A truly wonderful and important piece.
