Important Imperial Russian Jewelled Paul BUHRE Watch
(SOLD) This rare and important small ladies' pocket watch, formerly the property of a Russian aristocrat, is by the watch supplier to the Russian Imperial Court, Pavel (Paul) Buhre. Beautifully enameled, the 18 ct gold case is enriched with diamonds. The guilloche enamel is in mauve, the favourite colour of the Empress, Alexandra Feodorovna, and no doubt intended as a compliment to her. The enamel is further enriched with painted flowers. Regrettably, there is a tiny chip to the enamel at the base of the front. C1910 and with a 1911 presentation date within the case. The reverse is enameled in mauve with four floral sprays, mimicking the obverse. The reverse is undamaged.
4 cm tall and 3 cm diameter.
