The Schaffer Collection
Russian Imperial Art Treasures
ROCKEFELLER CENTER NEW YORK
Gold link bracelet by CARL G. FABERGE, the celebrated Russian Court jeweler.
The center bears a shield-shaped plaque which is translucently enameled over a chased (guilloché) surface in a rich red, and against this background is mounted the Russian Imperial double-headed Eagle, beautifully chased. The breast bears a diamond and the crown surmounting it is likewise set with a diamond.
Of exquisite refinement and delicacy it is a piece typical of the work of this great artist.
