Leningrad master produced this set in the world-renowned silversmith "Russkie Samotsvety (English: Russian gems) by hand.
The individual parts are worked in the "Cloisonné technique", proceedings, that were probably introduced to East Asia in the 14th century from Byzans or the Near East.
With this technique, thin filigree webs (braided silver wires) are soldered on a silver basis, which reflect the ornaments recorded previously by hand. These ornaments date from the 16th century. The resulting "cells" (French: cloison) are filled with enamel dust and are fired at 500° to 700°.
This production of enamel art had one of its heydays in the time of the most important Russian goldsmith "Fabergé", who lived from 1846 until 1920.
The set described here refers to the Soviet era and is a premium piece of the period. Complete Rarity
