A STRIKING LONG PAPER KNIFE MADE BY THE FAMOUS HEAD WORKMASTER TO KARL FABERGE,MICHAEL PERCHIN.PERCHIN WAS A MASTER GOLD AND SILVERSMITH AND ENAMELLIST TO FABERGE.
THIS MAGNIFICENT PAPER KNIFE FEATURES A SILVER SOLID SILVER HANDLE,ON TOP OF WHICH GUILLOCHE ENAMEL HAS BEEN APPLIED.THE DECORATION IS IN SILVER GILT.
IT HAS AN ACORN FINIAL TO THE TOP,WITH BEADING AND OTHER DECORATIVE DESIGNS.
ON THE UPPER SECTION OF THE HANDLE ON THE RIM APPEAR THE MARKS FOR MICHAEL PERCHIN,MP IN CYRILLIC SCRIPT,AND THE KOKOSHNIK FACING TO THE LEFT WITH THE ZOLOTNIK MARK FOR 88,INDICATING THE QUALITY OF SILVER CONTENT.
THESE MATCHING MARKS ALSO APPEAR ON THE FERRULE JOIN TO THE LOVELY TURQUOISE GUILLOCHE HANDLE ITSELF.
THE BLADE IS OF PALE NEPHRITE.
THIS ITEM WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE BETWEEN THE YEARS OF 1896 AND 1903,MORE LIKELY TO THE EARLIER YEARS OF THIS PERIOD,AS PERCHIN DIED IN 1903.
THIS PAPER KNIFE IS PRESENTED IN ITS ORIGINAL SATIN AND VELVET LINED CASE.THIS WAS NOT AN ITEM SPECIFICALLY COMMISSIONED BY THE TSAR,OTHERWISE DIFFERENT MARKS WOULD BE PRESENT.I HAVE HAD THIS ITEM INDEPENDENTLY ASSESSED AS BEING GENUINE.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING CORNUCOPIA ANTIQUES.PRICES ARE NEGOTIABLE.
