Product Description

This beautiful Faberge style visiting card box is made by Russian jeweller.
In Russia there would be nothing to write about, were it not for the court jeweller, Mr Faberge, who brings a most ingenious and artistic bole. It is not so much in jewellery strictly speaking, in the diadems, sparkling and lavish, in the stomachers and symbolic pendants that Faberge shows the original talent of an innovator. It is mainly in his jewels of a more special nature, which are less made for personal adornment, and more for an intimate use, that he shows the rarest qualities of the inventor.
Much admired at the World's Fair were, for instance, the exquisite objects made by Faberge for members of the Imperial Family, and which, according to the custom of this land, are given at Easter: there are numerous little chefs d'oeuvre, of perfect execution and taste, which rejoiced the connoisseurs: Amongst these objects, one will gladly remember a certain nephrite Easter egg, which, opened by a spring, displays a mobile easel, in gold, enamel and diamonds: it is a present given by Tsar Nicholas to his mother the Dowager Empress.
On the easel is placed a heart of enamel, and on this heart, between the design of a diamond-set cypher of the Empress, there appear other little enamelled hearts, each marked with an initial, which is that of the children and grandchildren of the widow of Alexander III. The idea is delightful, of great feeling, and is rendered with all imaginable charm. Two or three other presents of a similar nature are exhibited in the showcase of Mr Faberge, and seemed to me of equal merit to this one.
