Reproduced from the original
schematics of The House of Fabergé,
these candle holders were almost certainly
used aboard the royal yacht Standart, a great
favorite of Tsar Nicholas II and the royal
family. They spent considerable time on board
the Standart and the yacht's fittings were
as elegant as those of any of the royal palaces.
Here the dolphin is used as the
predominant support of the candle, the holder
itself resting on the curved tail of the dolphin,
the whole on a fluted column pierced by a triton.
Made of Sterling Silver, hallmarked and signed
Our price: $2500.00.
