The best-known example of this latter group is the cornflower study in the Matilda Geddings Gray Collection, now on long-term loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (illustrated, J. Keefe, Masterpieces of Fabergé: The Matilda Geddings Gray Foundation Collection, New Orleans, 1993, pp. 86-87). The Gray cornflower rests in an Art Nouveau Tiffany-style Favrile glass pot made by the Imperial Glass Works and is reputed to have belonged to Empress Alexandra Feodorovna. Two further related examples were exhibited, A la Vieille Russie, New York, ‘Fabergé: A Loan Exhibition for the Benefit of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum’, 1983, nos. 455 and 456, and are illustrated in the exhibition catalogue, p. 124.
