Lot Essay

Fabergé workshops executed furniture pieces on many occasions along two principle guidelines, either by creating and executing them using unusual products such as nephrite and silver- see Christies New York 19 October 2001, lot 139, a unique Empire style silver- mounted nephrite gueridon or enhancing already made furniture with specificly designed silver mounts. Such furniture is extremely rare on the market as only few examples have survived.
