1 Snowman, A. Kenneth; Faberge, Peter Carl Faberge: Lost and Found : The Recently Discovered Jewelry Designs from the St. Petersburg Archives
USA Harry N Abrams 1993 0810933071 / 9780810933071 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine 
0810933071 176 pages. Index. Select bibliography. Endnotes. "Tells the story of the recent astonishing discovery of two of the original design books from the workshops of the House of Faberge in St. Petersburg. Within the pages of these record books are countless meticulous watercolor and ind drawings of, it seems, every jewel that was made by the firm from 1909 to 1915. Each design is dated and accompanied by detailed handwritten instructions as to type, number and weight of gemstones, precious metal setting, and color of enameling to be used in carrying out the piece. Hundreds of these invaluable - and incredibly beautiful - drawings are reproduced here for the first time, most in full color, with captions describing the jewel, the materials to be used, and the date of execution. And very often the actual finished jewels are photographed next to the drawings from which they were created." - from dust jacket. 205 illustrations, including 169 plates in full color. Clean, bright and unmarked with negligible wear. Very slight lean to spine. An excellent copy. 
Price: 249.95 USD
