NEW YORK, NY -- On Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at 10am, Doyle will hold an auction of Russian Works of Art. Showcased in the sale will be Fabergé, icons, silver, bronzes and imperial memorabilia from private collections across the United States.

The Collection of a Gentleman

Featured in the sale is property from the Collection of a Gentleman. His collection of Russian silver and enamel salt thrones features examples by the eminent Russian silversmiths Khlebnikov and Ovchinnikov. Used in the traditional Russian welcome ceremony of bread and salt, these popular salt thrones are elaborately decorated with native ornament and folk sayings (est. range $500-2,500). This extensive collection of paintings, furniture and decorative arts from his elegant apartment on Park Avenue and his home in Southampton will be offered in a series of select sales through the Spring.

Property from Other Collections and Estates

A magnificent Russian silver-gilt and enamel box (est. $90,000-120,000) highlights a wide range of Russian enamels, Fabergé and objets de vertu from a West Coast Private collection. Produced by Feodor Rückert, arguably the most talented of all enamel artists in pre-revolutionary Russia, the box depicts A Knight at the Crossroads by the important Russian painter, Viktor Vasnetsov (1848-1926). Further highlights include an impressive silver tea service by Andrei Bragin, St. Petersburg, 1894, from a Philadelphia Private Collection (est. $25,000-45,000).
