A Russian gilded silver and shaded cloisonné enamel spoon, Feodor Rückert, undoubtedly for Fabergé, Moscow, 1899-1907. In Pan Slavic taste, the reverse of the oval bowl decorated with a stylized tulip blossom in shades of terracotta, mint green, navy blue, and celadon green against an opaque white ground, the twist handle with a circular openwork terminal centering an early model of the Russian Imperial double-headed eagle in shades of blue, green, and white. Struck with maker’s mark and 84 silver fineness standard. Condition: with several tiny chips to enamel on the back of the bowl, primarily at base and on the blue foliage in the center of the upper half. Struck with maker’s mark, 84 silver fineness standard, and Fabergé scratched inventory number 20716. Gross weight: 20 grams. Length 4 5/8 in. (11.8 cm).
Although this spoon does not have a mark for Fabergé as retailer, the scratched inventory number is certainly one of the firm’s numbers.
