An Antique Faberge Pendant in Neo-Russian Style of the early 1900s
Кулон Фаберже в Ново-Русском Стиле
made at Faberge's Moscow branch between 1899 and 1908
Triangular shaped gold plaque with rounded corners (resembles kokoshnik, a traditional Russian head-dress worn by women and girls) with an openwork flying stork caring a diamond in the center, possibly, symbolizing a child's birth.
The stork is accented with rose-cut diamonds and a ruby.
The lower border is decorated with four appliques engraved with diagonal lines and covered with translucent blue and golden enamel, apparently, to resemble a cloudy sky.
The two enameled triangular side drops imitate Old-Slavonic kolts (pendants attached to a female head-dress).
Matte gold, silver topped gold and and painted enamel.
19 old brilliant-cut, 3 old mine-cut, and 4 rose-cut diamonds, total weight approximately 3 carats.
Height 2 3/4 in. (7 cm).
It is likely that the pendant was privately commissioned.
The central flexible drop with bezel-set diamonds is flanked by two triangular drops which are covered with aquamarine blue enamel with golden shades.
Struck on the rim with 56 standard (14K - 583 gold) with initials of the Moscow assay master Ivan Lebedkin, and ' KФ ' in Cyrillic for Carl Faberge.
The detachable suspension ring is struck with assay mark and assayer's initials of Ivan Lebedkin.
