Catalogue Note

This sugar bowl and cream jug are of the same design as the tea service by the 1st Artel, Moscow, which was a silver wedding anniversary gift from Grand Duchess Alexandra Iosifovna, widow of Grand Duke Konstantine Nikolaevich, to her son Konstantin Konstantinovich and his wife Elizaveta Mavrikievna in 1909, and is now in the Hillwood Museum Collection.  See A. Odom, Fabergé at Hillwood, 1996, p.68-69, and G. von Habsburg and M. Lopato, Fabergé: Imperial Jeweller, 1993, p. 224-225.
