Faberge stamped in full

Workmaster Julius Rappaport, St.Petersburg, circa 1890

Silver standard – 88

Height 9,5 cm

Humorously created this pudgy model of an elephant portrayed seated as if a human being while looking forward; the elephant is shown in an upright position with the tip of his trunk pointed upwards, hind legs outstretched, front legs resting on the protruding belly. Despite apparent behavioural anomalies the elephant is cast and meticulously finished by hand to show animal hide, large floppy ears, tusks. The hallmark of Faberge along with perfunctory others appear on elephant’s curved tale underside.
