Russian silver enamel tea caddy “Teremok” by Fedor Ruckert for Faberge

Russian silver enamel tea caddy "Teremok" by Fedor Ruckert for Faberge




The caddy, with its sloping decks and elevated top, recalls in shape a 17th-century teremok. Four crowned Sirins are depicted within pale blue circles on each of its sides. The remaining ornament consists of scrolls and geometric patterns in brown and grey-green against dark blue. Characteristic of Rückert’s designs after 1908 are the tightly wound wire spirals appearing in sets of six on each face of the caddy.
Circa 1910. Overall 6 1/4″ high.
