This Kelch egg of 1901 called the Apple Blossom Egg was larger than most of the other Faberge eggs, and was designed as a jewelry case. The surprise that went with it was later lost. It was made with nephrite, gold, silver, diamonds and velvet.
Fabergé! Circa 1899, this gold, enamel, and diamond brooch has a definite Japanese influence, with a branch of cherry blossoms sweeping over a circular base of starburst-engraved gold with translucent purplish-pink enamel. It’s by Fabergé workmaster Oskar Pihl, and comes in its original silk- and velvet-lined case.
"Ball Dress: a round Circassian robe of pink carpe , or gossamer net, over a white satin slip, fringed full at the feet; a peasant’s bodice of pink satin or velvet, laced in front." From janeaustensworld... Look how close the skirt clings to the body. The artist wants you to see every natural curve from the bosom down. Very neoclassical and very sexy. April 1812: Ackermann
