Fabergé Friday

Even though you might be a drug addict, there is no reason why you shouldn't own something from Fabergé - like this little pill box for example! It was made by workmaster Alfred Thielemann, sometime between the years 1908 and 1917!

The tablet case is made of gold, covered in translucent oyster enamel over a guilloché ground. The hinged gold lid is encircled with a band of chased laurel leaves. The height of the case is 1.4'' (3.5 cm), and the price for being able to keep your drugs in it is 16,500 USD. You find it at John Atzbach Antiques.
