This collection of contemporary silver and enamel tumblers, shot-glasses and candelabra, captures the essence of Russian joie de vivre, and acts as an extension to the contemporary jewellery collections, imbued with savoir-faire, and created by the highest craftsmanship.
Table ornaments, both Russian and Western in inspiration, from the renowned House of Fabergé were part of the Russian preoccupation with “Art de la table. The striking decoration of these Art de la Table objects expresses the powerful graphic forms and clear, bold, vibrantcolours of Russian Constructivist art and design, linked to the Constructivist Collection of Fabergé jewels. Constructivist art, with its dynamic, juxtaposed elements and layered style, was the expression of a new philosophy that imbued art with a social purpose, through a strong, progressive colourful aesthetic. These striking tumblers, with their palette of apposed rich enamel tones, ranging from vibrant shades to delicate pastels, show the huge influence Constructivism exerted on 20th century modern art.
