Fabergé Friday

Today's Fabergé object is - a frame! A pretty frame...

This frame was made by workmaster Johan Victor Aarne sometime between 1890-1908. The gold bordered arch is enameled in pale, translucent green over a radiating guilloché ground. Over the enamel sits decorative floral swags in four-colored gold, accented with cabochon rubies. The back of the frame is made of mother of pearl, and has a hinged, guilt scrolling strut. The hight of the frame is 1 5/8 inches (4.1 centimeters), and it is now for sale at John Atzbach Antiques for 135,000 USD.


  1. This is really pretty Miss Meadows, quite an interesting piece to say the very least.

  2. So precious, adore picture frames. They did it all :))) I hope you have a great week doll xx
