Scope and Contents

Transcription: [double-headed eagle] #G. 14. Gold-mounted jade calendar device by CARL G. FABERGE, the Russian Court jeweler. In the form of a rectangular piece of dark translucent green jade it is designed in his classic manner and mounted with gold-gilt back and easel. At the top swags of green gold are contrasted with a reddish gold, the latter taking the form of crossed ribbons and exuberant ribbon bows, a larger one in the center and two smaller ones flanking it. In the very center two oval openins [sic] bear red enameled mounts which have the numbers for the day of the month and these are changeable each day by clicking the buttons on either side. Below on a set of gold gilt plaques the months are engraved and held in place by red enamel and moonstone mounts. Signed “Faberge”. $1200.00
