What a beauty! The workmanship is simply breathtaking.
I dread to think what this sold for at auction ... especially if it was intimated that the craftsman was associated with Faberge.

I suggest selling your racing car
I sold my roadster last year! :banger:
Incredible: it looks like the set sold from Andreas Thies Auction some years ago.
World of Aftab's is a very small place
Yes: the same set - see posts ##22-24 of this topic.
Same hook, same central medallion, same stones cutting ...
Wow no one has been here a good while.
I was very surprised to come across this. Is this really an order of aftab? Never seen an example like this. Looks alot like an order of sun and lion. Anyone seen similar?
