An exceptionally rare gold-mounted nephrite Sedan chair by Fabergé has resurfaced in a provincial British collection coming up for auction in Cirencester. Sedan chairs by Fabergé are rare, but they constitute a distinct group of objects produced by the firm.
This particular example was known and is pictured in Kenneth Snowman’s 1962 ‘bible’- The Art of Carl Fabergé.
Auctioneers Elizabeth Poole and Lindsey Braune commented: "Discovering the sedan chair in Kenneth Snowman’s book was rather a spine-tingling moment. It belongs to a family who collected some absolute gems in the early 20th century – and have looked after them ever since."
The sedan chair is estimated at £60,000-80,000.
