Faberge Rediscovered Faberge Rediscovered

Two silver fish knives produced by Faberge have been rediscovered in Poland. Valued at just under five million złoty, the knives date from 1900 and are believed to have been part of a wider set of cutlery that was melted down during the Russian Revolution; according to researchers, they were given to a Bolshevik soldier who in turn sold them to a Polish doctor in 1921. Unheard of for nearly a century, it was announced last month that the knives had resurfaced and had been sold to a private collector.
