Rare Early Antique Russian Cloisonné Enamel Standing Perfume Flask by Rückert



A rare and early gilded silver and cloisonné enamel standing scent flask, Feodor Rückert, Moscow, circa 1890. Of baluster form on spreading, circular foot, enameled with stylized, intensely-colored blossoms on an opaque white ground, the tapering neck within bands of geometric ornament, the slip-on cover with tent-form finial. Height 5 in. (12.7 cm) This impressive scent bottle is a rare example of the earliest production of enameler Feodor Ivanovich Rückert (1840-1918). The master established his own workshop no earlier than 1887, when mention first appears in city directories. This early example of his work is entirely in cloisonné, rather than shaded enamels for which he would later achieve acclaim. It demonstrates that Rückert had already developed a sophisticated and varied palette of enamel colors based in part on seventeenth-century Russian enamels as well as the ability to combine rich, vivid hues and varying floral and geometric motifs on a three-dimensional surface in a manner both eye-catching and harmonious.
