This wonderful gold and crustal inkwell 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 inkwell is created from rock crystal, carved with rounded details. The lid is gold, which adds wonderful shine to the piece. The fluted design of the lid mirrors the design of the rock crystal jar, with rounded bombe sides. The top of the lid has a glowing cabochon-cut sapphire which adds lovely detail to this inkwell. This piece is signed by Michael Perchin, who was responsible for the production of many of the Imperial Easter eggs.
