Among the exquisite works produced in Peter Carl Fabergé’s (Russian, 1846–1920) studios is the Imperial Anemones (19th–20th century), a fanciful creation featuring a “bouquet” of gold, enamel, and jade blossoms gathered in a rock crystal vase. This sumptuous Fabergé object was owned until 1918 by the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna. Now in The Matilda Geddings Gray Foundation Collection, it is on long- term loan to The Metropolitan Museum of Art and is the basis for our whimsical cuff.

Art HistoryIn 1872 when Peter Carl Fabergé (Russian, 1846–1920) was only twenty-six years old, he took over his father’s jewelry business in St. Petersburg, Russia. With the help of his brother Agathon, he cultivated the patronage of the last two czars of the Romanov dynasty and the elite of Edwardian society. Fabergé’s studios produced a wide variety of magnificent objets d’art.
