Fabergé Friday

It's Friday again! Good thing this day comes every week. Otherwise there would be less Fabergé posts... For this week I have chosen a pretty bonbonnière, made around 1896 - 1908!

The box has a rounded cushion shape, and is enameled translucent royal blue over a moire guilloché ground on the sides, and a sunburst guilloché pattern on the top. In the middle of the lid sits a cabochon ruby, surrounded by four golden leaves.

Around the edge of the lid runs a border of chased yellow gold laurel leaves, and the thumbpiece is set with five graduating rose-cut diamonds. The interior of the bonbonnière is guilt. You can find it over at Wartski.


  1. This is the most precious boxes, I love it!! The blue is perfect...would go very well with my outfits, haha!! The detail work is quite exquisite!! I may have to go to Wartski to have a 'closer' look ;-) Happy Friday doll, i hope you have a gorgeous weekend <3 <3 <3 xx

  2. Such a beautiful little case, I just love the striking blue Miss Meadows.
