Russian Imperial Art Treasures
ROCKEFELLER CENTER NEW YORK
Exquisite miniature gold frame by CARL G. FABERGE, the celebrated Russian court jeweler, of the fine quality and discriminating taste associated with the work of this master craftsman.
Its surface is chased (guilloché) in a sunburst pattern enameled pale green [underlined]. The inner border, enclosing photograph, is set with pearls, while the outer border is beautifully chased with an oak leaf motif of green gold, crossed at intervals with bands of red gold. The back is of ivory and bears a fancifully designed gold easel.
