depicted standing, her head turned to the left and tail uplifted; with diamond eyes
Some of Fabergé's most charming miniature carved figures of animals are made from highly-figured agates often found in Russia's Ural Mountains. Stones were carefully selected so as to enliven the tiny creatures; the coloring of the stone suggesting the natural variations in fur, feathers, or hide. When combined with the lively and expressive carving, the variations from red to brown to grey add a convincing realism to this figure of a she-goat. For this figure, see A. Kenneth Snowman, The Art of Carl Fabergé, London, 1953, no. 210.
