Faberge Imperial Jewelry at TEFAF Maastricht
Topic: Faberge

New-York based art and antique gallery A La Vieille Russie (ALVR) is preparing to exhibit a cross-section of its inventory at the world-renowned European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) in the Netherlands.

Among the works to be shown will be is a selection of unique pieces by Fabergé including a 19th century presentation charger, a range of jewelry created for the Romanov family, and a collection of miniature hardstone carvings of animals and insects crafted from semi-precious stones.

The highlight is a set of precious gifts — both Fabergé creations — that famed Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova received for her performance at the Imperial Hermitage Theater in 1898: a stickpin and a golden brooch with diamonds.

A La Vieille Russie will also showcase ornamental objects and jewelry crafted for the Russian Imperial family, including a round platter made of gilded silver, which was commissioned to celebrate the planned coronation of the Grand Duke Konstantin Pavlovich of Russia in 1825, which never took place since Konstantin had secretly renounced his claim to the throne in 1823.

“We want to show the lavishness, the sophistication of design, the quality and the beauty of antique jewelry,” says Mark Schaffer, a partner in A La Vieille Russie.

Established in 1851 in Kiev, and now located in New York on Fifth Avenue and 59th Street, the dealers have participated in TEFAF Maastricht for 21 years.

TEFAF will take place March 15-24
