A VERY GOOD SILVER AND GUILLOCHE ENAMEL PAPER KNIFE WITH A GILDED BLADE.THIS IS PRESENTED IN WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE ITS ORIGINAL SATIN LINED CASE,WHICH HAS SOME INTERIOR STAINS FROM THE INDENTATION OF THE HANDLE.
THIS WAS MADE FOR FABERGE BY THE WORKMASTER KARL ARMFELT,A SWEDISH FINN APPRENTICED TO PAUL SOHLMAN IN ST.PETERSBURG.HE WAS WITH FABERGE UNTIL 1916.
THIS PIECE IS OF SILVER AND WHITE GUILLOCHE ENAMEL ON A DECORATIVE HANDLE WITH SILVER GILT SWAGS AND A BOW TO THE BOTTOM.ON THE INSIDDE OF THE SWAGS IS A CAPITAL "A" SURROUNDED BY TINY DIAMONDS.
THE TOP OF THE HANDLE FEATURES A MILITARY HELMET WHICH IS TOPPED WITH A DOUBLE HEADED EAGLE AND A CROWN IN THE IMPERIAL STYLE.THERE IS CYRILLIC SRIPT TO THE HELMET.A NICE "DART" DESIGN SURROUNDS THE TOP AND BASE OF THE HANDLE,LEADING DOWN TO A DECORATED UPPER PART TO THE BLADE.
MARKS ARE ON THE BLADE,FABERGE IN CYRILLIC SCRIPT,THE LADIES HEAD FACING TO THE RIGHT AND A GREEK ALPHA BEHIND HER HEAD,AND 84 ZOLOTNIKS FOR THE SILVER CONTENT.
PLUS THE INITIALS FOR KARL ARMFELT.
