The Schaffer Collection
Russian Imperial Art Treasures
ROCKEFELLER CENTER NEW YORK
Exceptionally fine rectangular gold frame by CARL G. FABERGE, the celebrated Russian Court jeweler, enameled over a chased (guilloché) surface in an extremely pale blue.
Both the inner rectangular border for the picture and the outer border are perfectly plain. Surmounting the frame is a gold riband from which are suspended pendant festoons of berried laurel, and in each corner are rosettes inset with tiny diamonds.
The back is paneled with ivory and bears a fancifully designed easel.
