Lot 165


August Frederik Hollming for Fabergé (1854-1915). A pair of late 19th/early 20th century Russian mother-of-pearl, ruby and diamond-set cufflinks by the Faberge workmaster August Frederik Hollming, each dark mother-of-pearl oval panel designed with an oval ruby cabochon centre to an old-cut diamond border, chain link and associated Russian clip connections, the reverse of one panel engraved with scratched inventory number 64240, each with work master's mark Latin A. H., and 56 standard mark, panels approximately 1.7cm long

Provenance: The Barry Lock collection

August Frederik Hollming was born in Finland and moved to Saint Petersburg in 1876. He qualified as a master goldsmith in 1879 and was hired as a Faberge workmaster shortly afterwards. By the mid 1890s, he is believed to have been working exclusively for Faberge, and in 1900/1901 he moved his workshop to the Faberge premises at No. 24 Bolshaya Morskaya. The St Petersburg kokoshnik mark on these cufflinks dates them to between 1899-1908, when Hollming was known to have been working for Faberge. Hollming specialised in miniature Easter eggs, enamelled cufflinks, jewellery and cigarette cases.
