Christie’s is proud to present ‘A Selection of Fabergé Masterpieces from the Harry Woolf Collection’, which features some of the best examples of Fabergé craftsmanship ever to appear on the market: from animal figures and photograph frames to silver pieces, jewellery and flower studies. Highlights include a rare study of wild strawberries, a famous jewelled mosaic brooch and an enamelled gold bonbonnière in the form of a doge's hat.
Harry Woolf began to collect Fabergé in the early 1970s at a time when he was already a successful businessman and owner of the London-based pharmaceutical company Underwoods. It was his impeccable taste and eye that resulted in one of the most iconic Fabergé collections in private hands.
Refined over a period of nearly fifty years, Harry Woolf’s collection of Fabergé is considered to be exemplary, boasting rich exhibition history and remarkable quality. Christie’s sale on 29 November offers a unique opportunity to acquire selected masterpieces from this extraordinary collection.
