21. Fabergé Nephrite and Silver Enamel Cane -Ca. 1900 -The modified Derby shaped Nephrite handle shows beautiful proportions and an elegantly arched hand rest, pointed tip and a stretching vertical stem. Its smooth and polished surface reveals an intense spinach green color with the characterizing gleaming translucency of the best of jades. The cylindrical silver collar itself is built around an engine turned and transparent blue enameled central core covered by a filigreed laurel wreath sleeve discontinued by four different roses and framed by multiple rings including a topping one of trailing laurel. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail the ring is struck with a Fabergé hallmark beside various Russian marks and an “AT” work master stamp for Alfred Thielemann. This cane epitomizes the artistic eclecticism of Imperial Russia and distills much of the follies of the Romanov days. It exudes the essence of luxury and radiates this stylish exclusive flair granted only by supreme masters. Well streaked Makassar ebony shaft and a horn ferrule. -H. 3 ¾” x 2 ¼”, O.L. 37” -$2,500-$3,500 -For some interesting notes on Fabergé canes, see Youssef Kadri’s book The Mandel Cane Collection, page 122 and 123.
