#2325 Miniature rooster carved out of transparent carnelian, by CARL G. FABERGE, the celebrated Russian Court jeweler. In its small dimensions, every detail of the anatomy is correctly and precisely cut, even to the chasing of the individual feathers. The legs are of gold with the paws minutely chased and with sharp claws, while diamonds are set in for the eyes. It is a fine example of the miniature sculptures in semi-precious stones for which Fabergé was famous.
