Sterling Silver Collection

The House of Fabergé had always produced works in Sterling Silver, but in the last part of the nineteenth century Sterling Silver enjoyed a renaissance in Russia and the Moscow workrooms of Fabergé did increasingly more in Sterling Silver. They expanded it from elaborate tea services, vases, candelabra and other tabletop objects such as desktop necessities to include many objets d'art taken from nature among which were wild animals.

From "Fabergé and The Russian Master Goldsmiths" by Hill, Smorodinova and Ulyanova, there is a quotation which expresses perfectly the thoughts of these experts:

"The silver sculptures and vessels produced by the firm were distinguished by the fine quality of their casting and chasing and their originality of conception. Figures in the Historical Museum's (Fabergé) collection are remarkable for the lovely modeling of their forms and the way the texture of the 'skin' and even the characters of the animals are expressed."

It is important to note that all of the silver pieces produced by Fabergé were hand made and are, today, still hand made.
