|Russian Reserve Soldier, 1915
This 6.7-inch tall Russian soldier was created for the House of Carl Fabergé of St. Petersburg, by the artists P.M. Kremlev and G. Savitsky. It's made of gold, silver, jasper, ophicalcite, and pegmatite. The statue is currently held at the Fersman Mineralogical Museum in Moscow. I recently spotted it, when it made the briefest of appearances on an Amazon television documentary on the Fabergé empire. Naturally the video also features a lot of information on the famous Easter eggs. The most gripping parts of the program covered the First World War and subsequent revolutionary/civil war period and the disposition of the various treasures of the Romanovs. Highly recommended.
