An Ormolu mounted Malachite Tazza Russian circa 1840

An ormolu mounted malachite tazza, Russian circa 1840.
This tazza is close to designs by Ivan Ivanovich Galberg, in particular to a design for a malachite tazza dated 1826, which was made for Prince Alexander Nikolaevich Golitsyn at the Ekaterinburg Lapidary works. Another design by Galberg, of 1848, for a Rhodonite bowl, is also very similar see Anatoly Kuchumov, Russian decorative art in the collection of the Pavlovsk Palace Museum 1981, p. 327
