The Eleventh Artel – a Moscow-based jewellery firm, operating between 1908 and 1917. The firm specialised in producing small silver and silver-gilt objects decorated with cloisonné enamel of subtle delicate shades. The pieces display a wide range of decorative motifs, such as spirals, volutes, stylised floral elements. Some of the designs reveal a strong influence of the Art Nouveau style.
