Some of our items with a LIFETIME WARRANTY have the potential to generate immediate profits of 100% or even more!! By the way, our estimated price is much lower than the market price for this item now.

The choice is YOURS.

WORKMASTERS and MARKS at FABERGE SHOP: To understand how the gold, silver, and jewelry industry was structured in Russia at this time, it is worth quoting from Max Engman's article "Finnish Goldsmiths in St. Petersburg during Two Centuries”, in Tillander-Godenhielm, et al., Carl Faberge and His Contemporaries (1980): Most of the Finnish masters were only concerned with production; very few had their own shops. As a rule, Finnish workshops worked either under contract or as free subsidiary suppliers to firms who took care of sales. The high degree of specialization in the field favoured the adoption of a system of subsidiary suppliers. The House of Faberge had an organisation of this kind. In addition to the workshops which operated on the firm's premises, many of which were presided over by Finnish masters, Faberge employed many other workshops as subsidiary suppliers.
