Fabergé Friday

I feel it's time for a brooch - by Fabergé of course! This one was made by workmaster Henrik Wigström, sometime between 1908-1917!

The brooch - 1 1/2 inches (3,7 centimeters) in diameter - is made of a plaque of moss agate, that looks like a picture of a misty forest. 

The reeded gold frame is tied with silver ribbons, set with rose-cut diamonds. This brooch is right now for sale at Romanov Russia, for the slight sum of 25,000 USD!

Today we celebrate Midsummer's Eve in Sweden, so Happy Midsummer everyone!!! And I just discovered I have gotten my first mosquito bite for this year. So I think I have to go scratch that now...


  1. I love brooches. I collect them here and there when I spot a great one. This one is marvellous, it's moody and mystical looking to me for some reason. I think I'll just have to go and dig in my purse for this chump change sum of 25,000 they want for it and bring it home ;D I wish. Happy Midsummer's Eve my darling, sounds so enchanting. Enjoy yourself. The mosquitos like your blood because it's sweet ;D <3<3<3<3

  2. This is amazing Miss Meadows, such an awesome item, absolutely love it. So cool that today's the longest day of the year, hopefully you have a great one!
