Carl Fabergé & Fedor Rückert. Masterpieces of the Russian Enamel

This publication is dedicated to the exhibition "Carl Fabergé & Fedor Rückert. Masterpieces of Russian Enamel", which tells about the work of the eminent, but until recently little-known jeweller Fedor Rückert, who collaborated with many well-known companies, including the one of Carl Fabergé. Fedor Rückert created silver pieces decorated with multicoloured enamel, inserts with miniature compositions, which often reproduced art works of famous Russian painters, such as Viktor Vasnetsov. This is the first edition to show the career of the outstanding jeweller in such a volume – the catalogue includes about five hundred items, three hundred of which were created in his studio.
The catalogue consists of three sections, the first devoted to Fedor Rückert, the second to Karl Fabergé, the third section includes works by Russian firms, workshops and artels, with a special interest in the works of students of the Imperial Stroganov School who specialized in painting on enamel. Russian and British museums, as well as private collectors from Russia and the United States, provided their exhibits for the publication.
