Re: Faberge Catalogue and Price List - 1893

The original prices in rubles can be calculated based on the revised reform of monetary system in Russia in 1897; 1 ruble at a rate of 2 2/3 French francs or 0.774 grams gold.
The brooch number 1 in the catalog at 3.5 rubles would cost about $ 150 today.

Re: Faberge Mouse? Please identify!

Fortunately, everything made by Faberge was of excellent craftsmanship and detail, including enameling, jewels etcetera. There is not need to look at hallmarks on many items questioned Faberge or not — poor quality tells it all.

SIGNED UP AGAIN

I signed up for the third time here. It’s been a long time — more than 5 years and then again 2 years ago. I have more time to participate now. Having worked in a jeweler’s (silversmith’s) workshop for years I suppose I can offer valuable information and comments on ``how it’s made`` because I am fu...
