Ah, that is not problem, 'Belli Tsvetok' ( White flower, a diminutive), Crimea(if I recall correct, Yalta, Sevastopol), 1915, AF, Tatiana:



Now it is box for donation, most probably tuberculosis, since of 'White flower'.  ;-)

My mistake, sorry, year is 1914, not 1915. But still I am not sure.

Now 1911 signature:

I think it's in a fine art museum in Richmond, Va. If I recall well, a Mrs. Pratt bought some Faberge eggs and this is one of the eggs.

Very impressive, I have to admit, was egg made during NII's regime, or later? Wonder what year?  ;-)

Thanks, geglov3!

Re the 1912 "Tsarevich Egg" :   See www.mieks.com/faberge-en/1912-Tsarevich-Egg.htm   I have personally seen this egg at the (Richmond) Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and other USA exhibitions, on several occasions.  It (and 3 others, I believe) is still "owned" by that museum and did not go the way of the Forbes Eggs.  Mieks alleges some controversy over whether the portrait that was sold with the egg is the original one.  When I first saw the "surprise" of this egg, I was struck by the badly deteriorating condition of the portrait (on ivory).  My understanding is that it has NOW been replaced by a modern copy.     AP

Re  Reply #8:   Since time for modifying my last post (Reply #8) has expired, I now add this as an addendum.   There DOES exist an original Faberge photo of this egg being cradled in its ORIGINAL stand.  The original stand has apparently been lost (probably before the sale) and the egg now has a different stand.  The photo of the egg in the posting by "greglov3", Reply #5, shows the REPLACEMENT stand. The original stand was much more graceful with a "bowing-in" of the legs, with the feet being a modified "Greek Key/Meander" design. (The three eggs shown by "greglov3" are all from the Pratt collection.)   Additionally, while it is impossible for an observer to see the interior of the lapis shell of the "Tsarevich Egg", I have read that rather than being carved from a solid block of lapis (as most say), that the shell is actually composed of carefully matched PIECES of lapis of the same source and color, superbly fitted and the major joints covered by the gold tracery work, as far as the design allowed.  I do recall, at close range, seeing some fractures in the lapis, but presumed that they were natural (and well may be).    AP

Great photos, all new for me -- is that Maria Vishnyakova? They were taken ca. 1907/8.

It looks like Vishnyakova to me, too.

N.P.Sablin mentions 'Standart sailings' in 1908, so I believe photos are from that summer.  ;-)
