Here we have a wonderful museum quality open salt cellar with spoon made of 84 gilded silver and decorated with shaded cloisonne enamel by Russian goldsmith Feodor Ruckert who had been working with Carl Faberge. This salt cellar and the spoon are in excellent condition. Beautiful vibrant colors on ivory color background. Russian silver- and goldsmith of German. Worked with Carl Faberge. In Russian Cyrillic can be found on. The cellar is hallmarked with the goldsmith’s initials in Cyrillic = “FR” and the first “kokoshnik” mark, 84 Imperial Russian silver standard, which allows us to date this set to 1896 – 1908. The cellar is 3.5 cm. In diameter and 1.8 cm tall (0.71″); the spoon is 6 cm (2.36″) long by 1.4 cm (0.55) wide. I don’t see any enamel lost, maybe except on the spoon; there is some unevenness on background; see photo 9. If you need additional photos, please let me know. I did not do any cleaning, would leave it to the expert. Extremely rare find of the whole set of such an outstanding master and in such good condition.
