Five Russian kustar or folk art tea caddies, ca1900

Lot 0125 Details

Description
A group of five Russian kustar or folk art tea caddies, handcarved of wood, each one with scenes of the Russian countryside, Old Muscovy, or winter troika scenes in painted pyrography, with slip on lids with ball finial. Height 8 in. (20.3 cm), Diameter 5 in. (12.7 cm).

This Jasper52 auction is curated in partnership with John Atzbach, a leading authority in the field of Russian works of art made in and representing the tastes of the late Imperial era (late 17th century to the 1917 Revolution).

He was introduced to the subject at the age of 9, when a neighbor, recognizing his interest, allowed him to examine her collection of Russian enamels. He was immediately intrigued and spent the next several years learning all that he could about Russian silver and enamels, honing his knowledge before he began collecting them himself, fulfilling a childhood dream.

With a lifetime of knowledge in Russian decorative arts, John Atzbach is regularly consulted by collectors, dealers, appraisers, and auction house representatives from around the world. He has been directly involved in the formation of some of the world's finest collections of Russian enamels, Russian porcelains, and Faberge. He greatly enjoys his work and feels very fortunate that his childhood interest could evolve into a lifelong passion that continues to engage him every day.

Jasper52 will bid on your behalf as much as necessary to ensure that you meet the reserve price or that you remain in the lead, up to your maximum.
