Plate with Bride

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Working from the outer edge inward, a border of leaf patterns in blue and green plique-à-jour enamel is followed by a band of bright blue translucent enamel over a guilloché enamel mechanically engraved with a zigzag pattern. Next is a section in a scale pattern in light and dark olive rendered in champlevé enamel. Painted in the center is a wealthy maiden wearing a jeweled, kokoshnik-shaped headdress, four strands of pearls, and a fur stole. This young woman, perhaps a bride, holds a pink rose and is posed against a landscape with a castle in the background.

Inscriptions [Symbols] circular kokoshnik, kokoshnik right with delta and 84, IKh in Cyrillic, partially obscured
