Delightful charm of a German Dachshund [underlined] in seated posture. Carved from genuine topaz, he is adorned with a gold collar and suspended from a gold link. His eyes are realistically set with emeralds.
This excellently modeled and lifelike animal was designed by the celebrated court jeweler to Nicholai II, Carl Faberge, and executed by his talented stone carver, Kremlev.
