    Condition Report*: Metals:
    Gold

    Overall Condition: Very Good
    Condition Notes: A sweet and delicate pendant with the imperial history of the Russian empire! Marked with Russian hallmark and Fabergé maker's mark 'AT' corresponding to workmasters Alexander Tillander or Alfredt Thielemann, both are known to have signed their pieces under the initials 'AT.' Perhaps Alfedt Thielemann is more probable given his specialization in miniature Easter eggs among other things.
    Fabergé: Carl Faberge grew up working for his father’s jewelry business in St. Petersburg, Russia. In 1872, Faberge took control of the company. A master goldsmith, Faberge drew inspiration from the fabulous collections housed at the Hermitage museum. He was appointed jeweler to the Imperial Court, where he achieved his greatest fame, fabricating 50 jeweled Imperial Easter eggs between 1885 and 1916. His patrons included worldwide royalty and the social elite of the era. His jewelry designs and sculptures captivated the world. Faberge fled Russia in 1917 following the October Revolution. He died in Switzerland in 1920, leaving behind a legacy for unparalleled technical mastery of metalwork. Faberge’s company continues to create lavishly detailed jewelry and art objects utilizing the techniques and tools reminiscent of the originals from St. Petersburg.
