Re: SAUCE BOAT

2106 #PL says Dutkin,1838-1846.If the book is wrong not my fault - I mentioned the source,though.Hoping the mistake will be corrected in new editions. I will remember Dubinin and have already written his name beside 2106.Thank you.

Re: Faberge Catalogue and Price List - 1893

The original prices in rubles can be calculated based on the revised reform of monetary system in Russia in 1897; 1 ruble at a rate of 2 2/3 French francs or 0.774 grams gold.
The brooch number 1 in the catalog at 3.5 rubles would cost about $ 150 today.

Re: Faberge Mouse? Please identify!

I was talking about craftsmanship and the quality of an item. It may be 50% (although cannot understand why 50 % and not e.g. 45 % or 75%). Were the marks OK in the mouse, would it still be 50% Faberge? No way. If poorly executed it is too obvious. Will not engage in discussion regarding this; quali...

Re: Faberge Mouse? Please identify!

Fortunately, everything made by Faberge was of excellent craftsmanship and detail, including enameling, jewels etcetera. There is not need to look at hallmarks on many items questioned Faberge or not — poor quality tells it all.

SIGNED UP AGAIN

I signed up for the third time here. It’s been a long time — more than 5 years and then again 2 years ago. I have more time to participate now. Having worked in a jeweler’s (silversmith’s) workshop for years I suppose I can offer valuable information and comments on ``how it’s made`` because I am fu...
