Hi all -

some never before seen Fabergé objects which were 1913 bought in the Odessa shop as souvenirs by an German miller. This miller traveled every year to the Ukraina to buy his grain direct from the fields - while waiting for harvesting and loading the ship, he spent the time with sightseeing and shopping. While doing this he met his future wife (the girl in the photo frame, a painting on ivory after a photo), the daughter of an Italian miller, who also bought "from the fields". By chance I could convince the heir, who had no interest in the objects, that the best place would be in my collection...:-)

The enamel artist is the famous Fedor Rückert, one of the best in Russia, who had his own shop but also sold many objects to Fabergé.

Photoframe, silver gilded, enamel Cloisonné

Triangular bowl, silver gilded, enamel Cloisonné

Match safe in the English style, silver gilded, enamel Cloisonné
