Scope and Contents

Transcription: [double-headed eagle] The Schaffer Collection of Russian Imperial Art Treasures ROCKEFELLER CENTER NEW YORK #2722 Charming “fantaisie” by CARL G. FABERGE, the celebrated Russian Court jeweler, a tourmaline parrot of soft rose-color shading into a pale green tail and with emerald eyes, diamond collar and gold feet, perches on a swinging ivory bar which carries silver gilt pails on either end, filled with seed. Ingeniously contrived, the swing is suspended from a silver gilt stand mounted on a round tray in typical Fabergé classical inspiration.
