Table lighter made of bowenite in the shape of an oblong egg.
The lower part of the egg is set in a small gold stand, where an encircling ring, diamond-studded ribbons and four garlands meet in a square gold mountings, each with a ruby.
The egg stands on four cast deer hooves — a playful thought which is typical of Fabergé.
Diamond studded brooch in the shape of the Russian imperial crown, produced in eighteen examples on the occasion of Nicholas II’s coronation in St. Petersburg, 1896. Given to all the then Grand Duchesses of Russia, including Grand Duchess Anastasia, who handed this brooch down to her daughter, Queen Alexandrine. Only two other coronation brooches are known to exist today. The brooch was left to The Danish Royal Collection by Queen Alexandrine’s grandchild, Princess Elisabeth (1935-2018).
Bonbonnière (container for bonbons) of golden quartz in the shape of a slice of lemon. Mounted in gold with small rose-cut diamonds. A beautiful example of Faberge’s so-called objets de fantaisie, which play with the viewer’s perception. The workmanship is so accomplished that it almost makes the hard stone seem juicy.
