Imperial Russian Antiques / Faberge pendants
« on: February 07, 2009, 02:17:55 PM »
In the early sixties I saw a gold Fabrege egg pendant in a local antique store.  I was babysitting for .35 an hour then and the 40.00 pricetag seemed out of sight.  Of course I've wished I could go back and buy it ever since.  I've never seen another one of these, just plain gold but it had the Fabrege stamp on it.  Russian friends have told me that his factory turned out a lot of these for Easter.  Has anyone else come across one?

I bought this book in San Francisco in 1974.It is in Russian published by the Holy Trinity Monastery.  I've never seen it mentioned anywhere.  Has anyone else read it?  Pat

I have been trying to find out what happened to the author, Countess Irina Skariatina.  I know that she married capt.  Victor F Blakeslee in 1926 and he died in 1947.  I also found that she had been a war correspondent and worked for colliers mag .  Does anyone know what happened to her after that and where or when she died?
