Russian, silver snuff box of the Art Nouveau era, with enamels, 6 Moscow artel. 1908-1917.

A bright and memorable example of late Russian Art Nouveau, a silver cloisonné enamels snuff box - from the 6th Moscow artel. The snuff box has a discreet, octagonal shape and carries an impressive ensemble of geometric belts, floral and natural decorations. On the hinged lid there is a title picture of a fairy-tale flower-tree with fruits and berries that grew on the edge of an epic forest. In the corners it is surrounded by an ambivalent motif of a green wave from a dove-gray field, which, in the upper corners, personifies rainy skies and clouds, and in the lower register - the biosphere of lake and meadow grasses. The spiral pyramids of the central axis, above and below, bear the imprints of the elements of air and fertile earth. The sides of the body, in addition to the geometric belt of rhombuses and spirals, are decorated with alternating fields of fabulous flowering and water origin, the beginning and half a day of life. Corner cuts form dynamic, diagonal compositions on a light background. On the base of the snuff box there are Moscow hallmarks of 84 silver samples from 1908-1917, and mark 6 of the Moscow jewelry artel. On the inner edge of the edging there are a pair of imported French stamps. Swans in an oval. Dimensions: 2.5 x 8 x 6.6 cm. Total weight: 130.0 g.
