A beautiful art print of a Faberge Breakfast Set, Decanter Stopper, Four Menu Holders, and Vodka Cup with Serpent Handle. Breakfast turned into a special affair with this handsome silver set by Faberge presented in its original hollywood case. Made after 1914, the set includes a plate, napkin ring, salt spoon, saltcellar, egg cup, and egg spoon.
Although we do not know whether sets such as these were given as gifts or perhaps traveled with ladies and gentlemen of the day, each piece is as elegant as it is functional, and reflects the old Russian traditional breakfast of a boiled egg, a slice of toast, and a cup of tea.
Decanter Stopper, Four Menu Holders, & Vodka Cup with Serpent Handle
The House of Faberge designed the silver stopper formed as a double-headed eagle to cap the crystal decanter made in the first quarter of the nineteenth century by the Imperial Glass Factory. The container is etched with the crowned monogram on one side and a portrait of the reigning Czar Alexander I on the other.
Each of the four menu holders is enameled pale blue over a guilloche sunburst pattern with reed and silver-gilt borders and mounted upon a stepped hollywood base embellished with a band of silver-gilt beading. The set once graced the table of Countess Torby, the wife of Grand Duke Michael Michailovich, a grandson of Czar Nicholas I and first cousin of Czar Alexander III. The pale green-and-burnt umber enameled vodka cup is complete with a handle formed by two entwined chased gold serpents.

ABOUT THE MAKER:
Peter Carl Fabergé, also known as "Karl Gustavovich Fabergé", (May 30, 1846 – September 24, 1920), was a Russian jeweller, best known for the famous Fabergé eggs, made in the style of genuine Easter eggs, but using precious metals and gemstones rather than more mundane materials.
When Peter Carl took over the House, there was a move from producing jewellery in the then fashionable French 18th century style, to becoming artist-jewellers. Having acquired the title of Supplier to the Court from Tsar Alexander III on May 1, 1885, Fabergé had full access to the important Hermitage Collection, where he was able not only to study but also to find inspiration for developing his unique style.
Influenced by the jewelled bouquets created by the eighteenth century goldsmiths, Jean-Jacques Duval and Jérémie Pauzié, Fabergé re-worked their ideas, combining them with his accurate observations and fascination for Japanese art.
This resulted in reviving the lost art of enamelling and concentrating on setting every single stone in a piece to its best advantage. Indeed, it was not unusual for Agathon to make ten or more wax models so that all possibilities could be exhausted before deciding on a final design.
Shortly after Agathon joined the firm, the House introduced objects deluxe: gold bejewelled items embellished with enamel ranging from electric bell pushes to cigarette cases, including objects de fantaisie.
In 1885, Tsar Alexander III gave the House of Fabergé the title; ‘Goldsmith by special appointment to the Imperial Crown’.
The Tsar also commissioned the company to make an Easter egg as a gift for his wife, the Empress Maria. The Tsar placed an order for another egg the following year. Beginning in 1887, the Tsar apparently gave Carl Fabergé complete freedom with regard to egg designs, which then became more and more elaborate.
According to Fabergé Family tradition, not even the Tsar knew what form they would take—the only stipulation was that each one should contain a surprise. The next Tsar, Nicholas II, ordered two eggs each year, one for his mother and one for his wife, Alexandra. The tradition continued until the October Revolution.
Although the House of Fabergé is famed for its Imperial Easter eggs, it made many more objects ranging from silver tableware to fine jewelry. Fabergé’s company became the largest jewellery business in Russia. In addition to its Saint Petersburg headquarters, it had branches in Moscow, Odessa, Kiev and London. It produced some 150,000 to 200,000 objects from 1882 until 1917.
