Some items from our exhibition

The Buddha

The Buddha

Sartorite, gold, brilliants, rubies, enamel on gold guilloche.

There exist only 11 similar figures in the world made by Fabergé and Cartier. Mobile parts of the figure are balanced by internal system of counterbalances; head, hands and a ruby tongue rock smoothly when the statue is moved. It belonged to the collection of Aristotle Onassis, the famous Greek ship owner and billionaire. Subsequently it was passed on to several generations of Onassis family, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who also owned the statue for a certain period.

Round desk clock

Silver, gilding, guilloche enamel, bone, glass.

Diameter 11.1 cm.

Wigström's workshop made many desk clocks. He became Fabergé's chief master after Perkhin's death in 1903. As chief master he was also responsible for making Easter eggs for the Imperial Family. Wigström also had a special talent in making exquisite cigar cases, frames, clocks and small figurative works which the firm made in considerable quantities during its most productive years. Wigström's works are stylistically reminiscent of the First Empire and Louis XVI.
