1907 Faberge Style Large Navette Form Kovsh (Russian 88 Silver)

$6,000.00

Offered is an early 20th century presentation kovsh (1907) made in 88 zolotniki silver. The piece is marked on the bottom with spurious marks for Karl Faberge (marked after workmaster Henrik Wigström). Also marked '88' on the handle which bears the royal cypher of Czar Nicholas II. The center of the kovsh is notable for having a large double headed eagle (i.e., Russian imperial eagle). The kovsh is set with an amethyst cabochon at the front and with two exceptionally rare cat’s eye moonstones at either side that are chattoyant.

A Russian (cyrillic) dedication indicates that the piece was presented as an award to Rostmistr Kolenkin Alexander Nikolaevich, in the city of Petergrof, 1907. Kolenkin Alexander Nikolaevich (1871-) received his education in Odessa's real school. He entered military service January 9, 1891. He graduated from the Nikolaevsky kav. school and joined the Cyrusir Velhov regiment [Source: Cornet, July 8, 1893]. He graduated from the Alexandrov Military-Law Academy (1st class) and the St. Petersburg Archaeological Institute. He was a participant in World War I ultimately becoming Commander of the 5th Hussar. He ultimately was promoted to Major General on February 4, 1917 with approval in office. Besides this kovsh, he received several other awards: The Order of St. Stanislaus 2 nd st. (1909), St. Anne 2nd st. (1912), Swords to the Order of St. Anne 2 nd st. (1914), St. Vladimir 4th st. with swords and a bow (1914).

This piece was sold previously by Christie's in their 14 - 15 January 2014 Interiors Sale, Lot 2813. It was then in a private Manhattan collection until 2018 when it was acquired by CCC at auction. During the preview for the Manhattan Art & Antiques Center's June 12, 2018, "Rothschild Estate and Various Art & Antiques" sale, it got some press coverage:

Dimensions: 13.75" (35 cm.) long, over handle
Weight: 30.00 ozt. (980 grams).

Additional notes:
-88 zolotniki silver was a lesser used silver standard sometimes used on very high end silver pieces in Russia (where 88/96 = 91.6% silver)
-Some moonstones can exhibit chatoyancy, an extreme rarity. In the trade, these are known as ‘cat’s eye moonstone’. Other rare varieties of moonstone can occur with asterism effects. These are referred to as ‘star moonstone’. Cat’s eye and star moonstones are exceptionally rare and highly desirable.
-Note that this piece is holloware.
-Minor condition issues noted such as minor deformity, patina, and surface scratches.
-Please address all questions or concerns ahead of purchase; returns not accepted for this item.

Предлагается презентация ковша начала ХХ века (1907), выполненная в 88 золотниках серебра. Кусок отмечен на дне ложными отметками для Карла Фаберже (отмечен после рабочего мастера Хенрика Вигстрема). Также отмечен «88» на ручке, которая носит королевский шифр царя Николая II. Центр ковша отличается наличием большого двуглавого орла (т. Е. Русского императорского орла). Ковш установлен с аметистовым кабошоном спереди и двумя необыкновенно редкими кошачьими лунными зонами с обеих сторон, которые являются болтливыми.

Русское (кириллическое) посвящение свидетельствует о том, что произведение было представлено в качестве награды Ростимстрему Коленкину Александру Николаевичу в городе Петергоф в 1907 году. Коленкин Александр Николаевич (1871) получил образование в реальной школе Одессы. Он поступил на военную службу 9 января 1891 года. Окончил Николаевский кав. школы и присоединился к полку Кирусир Велхов [Источник: Корнет, 8 июля 1893]. Окончил Александровскую военно-юридическую академию (1-й класс) и Санкт-Петербургский археологический институт. Он был участником Первой мировой войны, в конечном счете став командующим 5-го Гусара. В конце концов, он был повышен до генерал-майора 4 февраля 1917 года с одобрением на посту. Помимо этого ковша, он получил еще несколько наград: орден Святого Станислава 2-й ст. (1909), Св. Анны 2-й ст. (1912), Мечи Ордена Святой Анны 2-й ст. (1914), Св. Владимира 4-я ул. с мечами и луком (1914).

Этот кусок был продан ранее Christie's в их 14 - 15 января 2014 года Interiors Sale, Lot 2813. Он был тогда в частной коллекции Манхэттена до 2018 года, когда он был приобретен CCC на аукционе. Во время предварительного просмотра для Манхэттенского искусства и антикварного центра 12 июня 2018 года, «Rothschild Estate и различные искусства и антиквариат», он получил освещение в прессе:
https://www.cityguideny.com/article/auction-jane-rothschild-manhattan-art-antiques-center-june-2018#.WytkARJKjEY<br />
Размеры: 13,75 "(35 см.) Длинный, над ручкой
Вес: 30.00 ozt. (980 г).

Дополнительные замечания:
-88 золотники серебра были менее используемым серебряным стандартом, иногда используемым на очень высоких серебряных изделиях в России (где 88/96 = 91,6% серебра)
-Некоторые лунные камни могут проявлять чатоянность, чрезвычайную редкость. В торговле они известны как «кошачий глаз лунного камня». Другие редкие разновидности лунного камня могут возникать при воздействии астеризма. Они упоминаются как «звездный лунный камень». Кошачий глаз и звездчатые лунные камни исключительно редки и очень желательны.
-Примечание, что этот кусок полый.
-Минорные проблемы состояния, такие как незначительная деформация, патина и поверхностные царапины.
-Пожалуйста, обратитесь ко всем вопросам или проблемам перед покупкой; возврат не принимается для этого элемента.
