Design is fine. History is mine.

Imagine a time with no computers.
Fedor Ruckert, design for cloisonne enamelled tea or coffee pot, 1910. Moscow, Russia. Via V&A

This design was probably drawn by Fedor Ruckert for the firm of Carl Peter Faberge. The shape of the pot is not unlike a Faberge egg, the ornate decoration makes it an ornamental piece rather than a practical object. The busy intricate pattern of a mixture of floral and geometric forms is derived from the Old Russian style, which had its beginnings in the 17th century. V&A
