Catalogue Note

Following the closure of Fabergé's London branch in 1915, Nicholas Fabergé and Henry Bainbridge continued to trade in London until early 1917.  The stock which remained unsold at that point, approximately 200 objects including, presumably, the present lot, was sold to the Parisian jewellers Lacloche Frères, who had a shop at 2 New Bond Street in London, and retailed by them.  The Fabergé wood cases were re-lined.  See G. von Habsburg, 'Fabergé's London Branch', Fabergé: Imperial Jeweller, 1993, p. 130; and H. Williams, Enamels of the World, 1700-2000: The Khalili Collections, 2009, p. 421.
