Date 1899
Country Russia
Description This 1899 Imperial Russian gold 5 Ruble is found floating in a golden rope halo that is attached to an ornate gold cap that tops a pillar of greenish-gray Siberian Onyx. A matching ornate golden belt attaches this to a second onyx shaft that extends to another gold cap that has been ornately enameled with a floral pattern. This cap-piece is joined to another enameled filigree that is affixed to the cupped spoon bowl of matching onyx. This outstanding spoon is truly an excellent example of the fantastic ornate workmanship of the great Russian craftsmen of the late 19th Century as typified by the artists of the Peter Carl Faberge’ workshop.
