Fabergé Friday

Who could ever live without being in the possession of a glue pot?! Well, probably anyone... But if the glue pot was made by Fabergé - like this one - you might want it anyway. It was made by workmaster Feodor Afanassiev, sometime between the years 1896 and 1908!

The pear-shaped pot is covered in pale green enamel over a guilloché ground, and has a circular gold foot chased with a foliate border. The two-colored beaded neck is fitted with a brush that has a fluted gold handle, with a cabochon ruby set in a gold petalled cup at the top. It's dimensions are 2'' x 1.3'' x 1.3'' (5 x 3.4 x 3.4 cm), and it can be found in the Royal Collection.

So pretty, love the rippled design and colours too..greens melting into yellows and golds, so amazing!! Would look wonderful in my house...not the royal collection, haha!! Happy Friday peach <33
